Handforth Gardening Society: Latest News

Welcome to the new Handforth Gardening Society web page.

+At our last monthly meet up(in between official meetings) we had a good visit to Prestbury Nursery. It has really good plants, a very nice selection and also flowers for arrangements. There were plenty of accessories, too, pots, fertilisers and even re-cycled pots. A nice place to go, recommended.

+Our next meeting is the AGM and Spring Show. This is for members only. The schedule is on the Spring Show page. The following meeting is the annual plant exchange. Come along and bring some interesting plants with you and buy a few new ones. It's fun and everyone gets to see and talk about plants.

+Our meeting last night was William Woods talking about Blackbrook Herbs and he gave us a good talk about his herbs that he grows and sells. This provoked a lot of lively discussion from the audience about their experiences and some questions. We all went away with some new ideas and many also went with some new plants. It was good to meet up with him again and to know that he is still promoting and selling herbs.

+2018/19 series of talks.

The programme of speakers for the new season, starting in September, is available on the Diary page. New members are very welcome to attend. Please contact one of the committee for more details.
