Practical Gardening (GDN 04)

  • Day and time: 3rd Friday of the month 10:30 - 12:15
  • Length of course: 3 terms. Autumn (3 Weeks), Spring (3 Weeks), Summer (6 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 20
  • Start date: 18 September 2020
  • Description:

    Whether you are experienced or new to gardening, this group is for keen gardeners. We meet monthly on the third Friday from September, with a break December-February, then through to July/August, as the group decides. We visit each other's gardens, share our experiences, jobs we are doing then, and any other perennial problems. Over coffee we might exchange plants, catalogues, borrow books and make plans. It does not matter how large/small your garden is, how developed, or how blank a canvas. You don't have to host a meeting if you don't want to. This year we are going to run two groups of 10, doubling the size of the course to 20. We will divide members into 2 groups, and send you the relevant information. The first meeting for both groups will be on Friday 18th September via Zoom, when we shall plan visits for the year, there will be 1 or 2 more sessions via Zoom and then resume visits to our gardens from 19 February.  These will be monthly to begin with, then fortnightly during the summer term, so we will fit in visits to everyone’s garden who wants us to.


    Note: The Autumn and Spring terms will be held via video-conference (Zoom). Autumn term dates: 18 Sept, 16 Oct, 20 Oct. Spring term dates: 19 Feb & 19 Mar.
