Welcome to the Orleton and District Gardening Club
We are a friendly club of approximately 100 members ranging from the novice to the experienced gardener based in Orleton on the Herefordshire/ Shropshire border.
Join us and enjoy great company with like minded people, inspiring talks from guest speakers, frequent outings and a range of discounts. You can be sure of a warm welcome.
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.
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.
If you have difficulty getting to the meetings, do let us know - we may be able to help.
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.
This years' planned trips, outings and events
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.
