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. For gardening equipment you might want to check this Buyers Guide, which not only shows you the best possible tools for your garden but also some very helpful tips!


Looking back

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