Bretforton Garden Club
Bretforton Garden Club is a thriving and
friendly club with nearly 100 members, not
only from Bretforton but also the surrounding villages. We aim to appeal to anyone who has an interest in gardening or horticulture from absolute beginners to more experienced gardeners.† Membership is £10 per year.
Our meetings are usually held on the first
Thursday of the month at the Bretforton
Memorial Hall WR11 7JH starting at 7.30pm,
when we arrange speakers on a variety of
gardening related subjects such as growing
and using herbs; vegetable growing in a small
garden; pruning; growing dahlias and plants
for awkward corners. We have recently
introduced a Plant, Seed and Skill Swop which
is proving popular. During the meetings we
hold a raffle and serve tea/coffee and biscuits.
Visits to local gardens and specialist nurseries are arranged, particularly during the summer months, as well as day coach trips to gardens further afield. During the past year we have visited Kew Gardens, Hampton Court Castle and Longstock Water Park.† We also welcome memberís suggestions for speakers and visits.
E-mails,† a regularly updated website and Facebook group keep members well informed.† In the summer, to coincide with the Asparagus Auction which raises money for Bretforton Church, we organise an Open Gardens Event when about 12 local gardens are open to the public .Refreshments are available as well as a plant stall and tombola. Funds from this event are donated to local charities chosen by club members.
We look forward to welcoming new members.
