Future events

We have no meeting in August so our next meeting will be on Wednesday September 27th when there will be a visit to Bressingham Gardens.

I can’t give a report on our Peter Beales Roses trip as it doesn’t happen until after publication (of the newsletter)! However the prospect of managing to identify those long desired roses for that empty spot in the garden will be enjoyable.

Although there is no August meeting anyone can still contact us for details and membership enquiries by phone 01728 628 296 or email

Thursday 27th July

We will be visiting the well known Peter Beale’s Roses which will include a tour of the garden and tea. There should be time for browsing! Could you please let us know whether or not you will be coming by contacting by phone or e-mail. As always we welcome anyone who wishes to join the club or for visits please contact Janie 01728 628 296 or email

March 2017

We don’t usually meet in January but this year we invited Wingfield and District Gardening Club to join us for a Saturday morning visit to two members’ gardens to view them in winter. Although not the warmest of days it was dry and everyone was suitably dressed and enjoyed the coffee as well as the gardens! There will be repeat visits on June 10th to see the summer transformations!

On Thursday 30th March there will be a trip suggested by mem-bers to Anglesey Abbey which is noted for its spring bulbs.All details and membership enquiries to 01728 628 296 or email


Our July visit was to the Friends Meeting House and we were blessed with wonderful weather despite the rainclouds looking very ominous earlier in the day. The garden is only open for private visits and all money goes to charity. Our hosts had thought of everything including some friends on hand to answer questions about plant names, planting times etc. We were treated to a fabulous tea on the patio which over-looked the huge pond with its impressive and unusual plants all around.

Our May visit to Sundown was enjoyed by everyone and it was lovely to have guests from neighbouring clubs join us. The beautifully kept garden which we could view at leisure in good weather had many unusual plants and points of interest. The rho-dodendrons were delightfully colourful and the kitchen garden was envi-able. We thank our hosts for a great day.
