June is going to be a busy month. Starting with a visit to two local gardens who, after opening for Gardens in Winter, will now show the Gardens in Summer. We are pleased to be joined by Wingfield and District Group once more. There will be two more visits to local gardens, one in daytime the other in the evening. We thank them in advance! We will be having our gardening stall at Worlingworth Fete on Saturday 24th June and hope for interesting contributions from our members for all the village to see and buy. We’re hoping that everyone will stop and talk to us and tell us what they think. New members always welcome. See us at the Fete or contact Janie on 01728 628 296 or e-mail barughhouse@aol.com.

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 barughhouse@aol.com

2016

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.
