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.
