 its that time of year again for planning garden visits for next year!!!!!! At the Lenches we have been doing this for a number of years for Charity and I think this may well be the final year that we open…. so I’m hoping that your group will come and give our charity support ( Air Ambulance this year having supported St Richards Hospice for many years!!!)

If you wish to come …we will be opening the week commencing June 24th as the garden is looking particularly good then or alternatively the week commencing Sept 2nd when the Prairie Garden is coming into its own.

    To remind you The Lenches Eckington is a 4 acre garden composed of various rooms and includes a Knot Garden, Water Garden, Scented Garden plus extensive Prairie Garden and Herb and Vegetable Gardens. There is also a variety of topiary and various sculptures collected on our travels.

Teas are available and the cost is £10.00 to include Tea.

I hope this whets your appetite and if your group hasn’t been for a while ( or ever!!!) then why not book your group in for a visit? My contact details are as follows so please give me a call or drop an email in order to “book your slot!!!”

Welcome to the Bretforton Garden Club Website 


Bretforton Garden Club is a thriving and friendly club with almost 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 £5 a year.

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.

Visits to local gardens and specialist nurseries are arranged, particularly during the summer months, as well as day coach trips to gardens further afield. We also welcome member’s suggestions for speakers and visits. Our monthly newsletter and website keeps 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 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.
