About the Garden Club
Garden Club meetings take place on the third Thursday of each month and new members are always welcome. We’re a friendly bunch!
When meeting at Picton, we commence at 10.00am and meet either in Maria’s Restaurant and Deli or the Lecture Theatre and if we are making a trip beyond Picton, we meet at the host site 10.30am. We always try to keep members up to date, so we do e-mail reminders or further details for each meeting.
Waterproof clothing and boots are generally recommended! Entrance fees to other gardens and refreshments are rarely more than £5 – £10, but most people bring a little more cash, as often there are plants to buy. Also, unless you have a smart phone, cameras are useful as you invariably see a plant you want to identify or remember!
We are also delighted to say that we are more than happy for Members to bring along to meetings any plants which they would like to swap with others and if anyone has a particular subject, problem or technique that they would like help with in terms of a Q and A session, do let us know, and we can make sure we cover it at one of our coffee stops.
