The Society was formed many years ago and currently has 30 members. We meet in the village Memorial Hall on the second Wednesday most months of the year. Meetings start at 7.30 pm and after a presentation by a guest speaker refreshments are served.
Guest speakers cover all aspects of horticulture and nature and recent subjects have included roses; camellias; clematis; carnivorous and herbaceous plants; organic gardens; vegetables and many others. Owls; other birds; bees and garden worms have also been featured.
In addition there have been ‘garden’ talks including Lukesland; Torre Abbey; Dartington and The Keukenhoff. Coach trips have included Rosemoor; Kilver Court; Wells Priory and Abbotsbury Tropical Gardens and Swannery among many others.
There is a Mini Garden Show every August which is combined with a Dutch Supper and an annual New Year’s Lunch usually held at Dainton Golf Course.
New members and visitors are very welcome. Annual membership is £4 per person and there is a £2 entrance charge (£3 for visitors) to each meeting.
