Our meetings are usually held on the first Thursday in 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.
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 and villagers take part in a Scarecrow competition. 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.
