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.

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.
