Gardens Club Programme - advice, free plants and savings for beginners !

Although club members include many green-fingered enthusiasts, gardening beginners are always welcome. And if, like me, you feel that your garden isn't up to scratch but you like plants and gardens - join the club to learn more about them. This year's programme will be particularly helpful to anyone who wants to liven up their garden or is daunted by the prospect of filling a new plot.

You can save on plants, garden furniture and tools at our 25 % discount evenings at Castle Gardens, Sherborne (Spring) and Poundbury Garden Centre (Autumn). In addition the Club organises a bulk order of Parker's wholesale bulbs and plants with free delivery. All this for £10 membership, as well as inspirational talks.


Programme for 2016-17.
All meetings are at the Memorial Hall at 7.30pm unless otherwise stated.
