What we do

Like the other gardens groups, we aim to provide a stimulating forum for swapping ideas, plants and experiences.

We have indoor meetings in Winter for demonstrations and slide shows or films, while at brighter times of the year we like to get out and about visiting local gardens with occasional more extended trips to places of interest to gardeners, such as Lowther Castle and Newton Rigg, sometimes to take part in practical courses.


May 2019

We are always happy to welcome new members and details of our itinerary can be obtained from the coordinator.

We are holding a seed planting and plant swap session in April, also visiting gardens in the area and further afield.

In June we are going to Chorley garden festival and are planning a visit to the Edinburgh botanical gardens by train from Oxenholme in July.

November 2018

The programme is being prepared. If you are interested in joining this group please contact the co-ordinator.
