Despite, or maybe thanks to, the monsoon like weather of recent weeks, we are now seeing our gardens greening up and starting to explode into colour, with flower borders and vegetable plots growing apace.
At Amberley Gardening Club our regular monthly Zoom meetings will make way for some garden visits over the summer months, providing the opportunity to re- organise some of the events postponed from our 2020 calendar. These will include a visit to The Laskett garden near Ross on Wye, a tour of the behind-the- scenes plants and a LandRover safari at Slimbridge WWT and a tour of Woodchester Vineyard. And we are looking forward to our exclusive members-only Open Gardens Evening, hopefully in July, where we will tour 3 or 4 local gardens and finish with a bring and share supper.
On 9th September we resume our programme of regular monthly meetings with a talk by a specially invited mystery guest. These monthly meetings will take place on the 2nd Thursday of the month, at 7.30pm at the Parish Rooms in Amberley and will continue through to May 2022.
You may have visited our Plant Sale on 24 th April on the green opposite Amberley Parochial School. From plants grown by our members and some donated by Nailsworth Blue Diamond Garden Centre we managed to raise an amazing £350 for club funds and donated a further £200 to the Shop on The Common who provided tea, coffee and cakes. Many thanks to those of you who came along to support us and also to the army of willing helpers.
In addition to our mix of talks, tours, trips and regular meetings, Amberley Gardening Club have set up a WhatsApp group where members can post photos of their favourite plants, recent garden visits, mysterious unidentified plants, and discuss topics as varied as how to stop badgers digging up the tulips and how to create an auricula theatre from an old chest of drawers. So do keep up to date with our latest news via local websites and Facebook pages.
We would be delighted to welcome you as a visitor or a regular member to Amberley Gardening Club. For further information, please email Christopher Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org
