WINTER SOCIAL

The speaker at our Winter Social on 25th January was Tony Russell, the well-known garden tour leader, author and broadcaster.  He gave an excellent talk by Zoom on “The Great Gardens of Wales”.

GARDEN SNAPSHOTS

We invited members to write a paragraph about their gardens or gardening experiences this year:  something grown; garden wildlife, or a story about something that has happened in the garden.  The contributions have been collated into a document and sent to members.  Here is a copy of Garden Snapshots.

TOUR OF SOUTH WALES GARDENS

Travel Editions have rearranged this for the week beginning 21st June 2021.  There are now a small number of places available.

GARDEN CENTRE DISCOUNTS

Club members have in the past received discounts at various local garden centres and nurseries, which we hope will continue: Yarnton Home and Garden, Freeland Nurseries and Burford Garden Centre.  Following a recent talk by the owner, we have also been offered membership of Preston Bissett Nurseries.  Yarnton now offer free Yarnton in the Garden events.
