Orleton and District Gardening Club

Welcome

We are a friendly club of approximately 100 members ranging from the novice to the experienced gardener.

We normally meet on the last Tuesday of each month in

Orleton Village Hall at 7:30 for 8:00 pm

Stop Press

We have a special speaker on September 25th
Christine Walkden will be talking about Gardens of the UK.

Tickets are available to both members (£6) and non-members (£12). They are available in the Orleton Village Store or contact us by email at orletongc@hotmail.co.uk.

Please look at our programme to see the range of activities and speakers for the year.

There is always a plant stall where some excellent bargain plants can be purchased, and a raffle with worthwhile prizes. We also enjoy the opportunity to chat to fellow members over a free cup of tea and a biscuit.

Come along to any meeting. Guests welcome for £2.50 per meeting. We are always glad to enrol new members. Annual membership is £12.50 (due each January) and there is no charge for meetings or tea and biscuits. Membership Form.

There is an Annual Show in August when vegetables, flowers, pot plants, cookery, preserves and floral arrangements are exhibited with friendly rivalry among the exhibitors. At the end of the show we hold an auction of left-over produce.

In the summer we usually visit members' gardens and end the evening with a supper, usually in the village hall, when our members provide a buffet meal and we can sit and enjoy a chat with our friends.

The December meeting is the A.G.M. and we have a similar buffet meal.

We usually have one or two outings each year to places of interest to gardeners, as well as a club dinner in March and a club lunch in November.

We are affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society
