Welcome to Ashdon Gardening Club
This popular village group welcomes novices and experienced gardeners alike at their monthly meetings which are held on a monthly basis from October to May. Whatever your level of experience you will usually find something to interest you, and you may even win a raffle prize or be presented with a fledgling plant.
Our meetings are held on a monthly basis through the autumn, winter and spring. They start with a Question and Answer session. Everyone is welcome to attend. To view future and past meetings click on the Meetings link at the left hand side of the page. If any readers can add to the answers would they please email the author. We would be very happy to hear from you.
The next meeting will be on Thursday 21st March when Geoff Hodge will be speaking about gardening on chalky clay. Annual membership fees remain at £10. First time guests may attend free of charge and other guests will be welcome to attend at a charge of £5 per meeting.
2019 Plant Sale
We shall be holidng our 2019 Plant Sale on 18th May outside Ashdon Village Hall. Please bring along any cuttings, seeds or plants that you wish to to donate. The sale will start at 8.30 until 10 am or later if we still have items left.
Under the link to the Village Show you can also read about our 2106 visit to Marks Hall Estate which was thoroughly enjoyed by all members who went.
We now have a Facebook Page "Ashdon Gardening Club" where we will add any notices in future. Notices of future meetings are also placed on Ashdon Parish Council's website. We are happy to include any gardening related notice on the Facebook page and also hope that members and others will put gardening tips and information on the site and post photos of their gardens or any that you think are worth visiting.
