Time to get gardening? — needing inspiration?


The first meeting of 2015 will be held at Tarvin Community Centre on Tuesday March 10th 2015 at 8.00pm. The evening begins with a VERY brief Society AGM, after which we really will be inspired by an illustrated talk:-

'Gardening through the year'.

This will be given by the well-known local gardener Sue Makin.

Sue is a dedicated gardener whose 2-acre organic, wildlife-friendly, gold-award-winning cottage garden is at Clemley House in Duddon. It features an orchard, wildlife ponds, a wildflower meadow, fruit and vegetable areas, a badger sett, a rose pergola, a gazebo and a summer house, nest boxes for barn owls and many other birds, both gravel and shade gardens, a shepherd's hut and a poly tunnel. Many amphibians breed in both the large and smaller pond. The variety of Sue's horticultural interests is shown by the range of plants in her garden, which contains herbaceous borders with shrubs, roses and ornamental trees, in addition to the annuals and wildflowers that provide colour and will support wildlife on a year round basis.

Sue has visited Tarvin Gardening Society before and left us full of good ideas and enthusiasm to get going and to make more of our own gardens. Her own garden is open on Sunday 28th June as a part of the Cheshire & Wirral "Yellow Book Scheme" — giving us an opportunity to see one of the very best local gardens.

Membership of the Society costs very little — just £5 per year. Members then pay just £1 each time they attend a meeting. Non-members are always welcome at our meetings and pay £2 each time. A hot drink and biscuit will be served afterwards.

Come along and see what you really can do with your own garden!
