If anyone is interested, BBC Gardeners World has a good website;  and the Gardeners’ World magazine gives free access to a “What to do now” section. This is a week by week breakdown of things to do for fruit, flowers, veg, in the greenhouse and in the garden in general. There is also a “How to …” section.


Looking back

The inaugural get together took place on 19th April 2012 when 30 members gathered at David and Maryke’s home, to chat about what the club might do.
