Lydden Vale

Gardening Club

You don't need to have a large garden

to be interested in plants and like

growing them. Window sills, pots and

containers and house plants can

provide year round scope for the

enthusiast. So why don't you come

along and meet us?

Anyone interested in joining, please contact: VivianeBernhard Lydden Vale Gardening Club on Facebook

If you like gardening and nature, then the Lydden Vale Gardening Club is for you! In autumn and winter we meet in Buckland Newton village hall, on a Wednesday evening starting at 7.30 pm, to enjoy a variety of talks from guest speakers. As the weather warms up in spring and summer we go further afield and visit gardens in the region on Wednesday afternoons. Our programme for the year is shown below. All our meetings are held in Buckland Newton Village Hall starting at 7.15 pm for 7.30 p.m., with plant sales, raffle and refreshments.  An annual membership of £8.00 gives you access to all meetings or you can choose to pay an entrance fee of £3.00 per meeting.  Times and charges for garden visits are as stated individually.
