Wickham Market & District Gardening Club


Our Club

Anyone interested in learning a little more about gardening is most welcome to come and join us.  Club membership is neither expensive nor in any sense exclusive.  Our Member- ship Secretary will be pleased to give you more information.  You can contact us by email at wmgardenclub27@gmail.com or by leaving a comment on our Guestbook Page.

Under normal circumstances we would ...

... hold meetings in the Village Hall at 7.30 pm on the third Thursday of most months, with speakers on all sorts of garden-related topics.  We make no charge for occasional interested visitors, so why not come along and give us a try?

We also arrange visits to interesting gardens
 and nurseries during the summer months.

On the second Saturday in September 
we hold a Flower and Vegetable Show in the Wickham Market Village Hall.  This is open to the public from 2 - 5 pm on the Saturday and the Sunday. We are always keen to attract new exhibitors to our Show: both experienced growers from the surrounding area and those who may be new to the idea of Showing their produce.  Our Autumn Show webpages have much more information.

    
There is a monthly newsletter called Rake's Progress that all members receive.  This has reports on recent activities and details of future attractions, together with news of local events, gardening tips and weather reports.

The Club is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society.

Forthcoming Events
  • The September Meeting


    Our speaker for August (via Zoom) will be Alison Marsden, who is a professional gardening consultant.  She specialises in Gardening for Wellbeing running social and therapeutic horticulture sessions. Her topic for us will be "More garden impact for less effort".  A topic that I am sure we are all interested in.

    This is a members only event and places must be booked in advance.  Full details will be in the August edition of Rake's Progress. The meeting will start at 7.30 pm on Thursday 20th August.


  • September Virtual Show


    I hope members are planning for our Virtual Show on 16th September. Full details about the Show are available on this website with details of how to submit your photographs. The closing date for entries is Wednesday 9th September, but you can be taking your pictures now. 


Planning for Trying Times
The Gardening Club Committee is now meeting regularly on Zoom to look at what we might be able to offer our members during these difficult times.  Zoom has proved particularly useful as a way of getting in contact and we are hoping to use it again in the coming months.  Our Zoom Talks have been very successful and we are talking to more potential speakers for the Autumn.
