Handforth Gardening Society: Latest News

Welcome to the new Handforth Gardening Society web page.

Change of activity for November 7th.

HGS guided afternoon tour of the Lovell Quinta Arboretum.

As you will have seen for the message from Sarah Wilkinson in the Newsletter, we have had to re-arrange the meeting for November. We are now visiting the Lovell Quinta Arboretum. We will meet in the car park of “The Swettenham Arms” (postcode CW12 2LF) at 1.45 p.m. For those who don’t drive (or prefer not to), lifts / car sharing may be arranged. Please contact Society Secretary (moc.loa|rehcuopnomis#moc.loa|rehcuopnomis) if you would like a lift from Handforth (St Chads Church carpark departure point at 1pm), or can provide one.
The cost of the visit will be subsidised by the Society, but we will need to make a charge of £3 per person. It would be a good idea to bring some strong walking boots or Wellington boots for the visit.

We hope as many members as possible will like to come along and see some beautiful Autumn colours.

New Schedule of speakers 2017/18.

Our new programme begins on Tuesday 5th September with a talk from Robert Barlow on "Hostas".
This will be an opportunity to become a member of Handforth Gardening Society for just £10. It is a wonderful place to learn about gardening and also pick up some bargain plants and seeds. New members are welcome. Just contact one of the Committee for more details.

A full programme of speakers monthly talks is available on the "Diary" page.
