What we do

We meet once a month to visit gardens in this area and to talk about gardening. Later this year we hope to start swapping plants as well as ideas.
We enjoy chatting about gardening (and lots of other things.)

We don't have a set meeting-place and our visits are very informal and seem to involve refreshments of some sort as well.

Reports

August 2019

Our first half of the year has been very enjoyable visiting the delightful gardens of Linthwaite House, Askham Hall, Dallam Tower, Hazlewood Farm and Fernhill, accompanied by delicious cakes and scones!!

Our second half of the year includes Rose Cottage, Levens, Haverthwaite Lodge, Merewood Country House and a floral Christmas workshop with mulled wine and mince pies culminating with our Christmas Dinner.

I am sorry but this Group is full at the moment’

May 2019

We continue to find new and interesting gardens to visit. An especially lovely one was Clearbeck House at Tatham, well worth the journey. Lovely plants and interesting art work.
We seem to be jinxed by bad weather on most of our outings but none more so than October when we had to cancel the trip to Mawsons in Silverdale because it was particularly terrible. Hopefully, we will visit this 'work in progress' garden next year.
