Read about a very successful visit to The Ridings in Chestfield. Members enjoyed a beautiful garden full of interesting and unusual plants. Just what Hardy Planters like!
Gardening is usually something of a solitary occupation so belonging to a society like ours gives us the opportunity to meet other like-minded people to share our love of plants. Some of us are experts, some are beginners and most of us are somewhere in between but we are all keen to learn more and to share the knowledge we gather.
We arrange events throughout the year. From September to April we have monthly meetings with a talk, plant display, plant, sundries and book sales and seed swap. In all but the depths of winter we organize visits to gardens large and small. Our area groups often arrange other informal events where you can meet fellow members.
