Winter has set in!
The wet and dull weather continues but we can take advantage of the sunny spells to get some planting done and appreciate the beauty still to be found.
There are flowers still hanging on past their season, colourful berries and sparkling evergreens.
And, of course, lots to look forward to!
Scroll down to see the events we have planned.
A very happy Christmas

Garden visit in Fawkham
A visit for members only to a beautiful garden to see a wide variety of snowdrops in the middle of the galanthus season, the ideal time to see these harbingers of spring.
An interesting visit
Take a look at some of the stunning images taken on a visit to an unusual and interesting garden, with a very wide variety of amazing plants, earlier in the year.
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.
