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 wmgardenclub@aol.com or by leaving a comment on our Guestbook Page.

We 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 webpages on the Autumn Show 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 April Meeting


    The subject of our April meeting follows on very well from March, because the collection of Irises that Sarah Cook will be talking about are also based at the Suffolk Punch Trust at Hollesley.  The title of her talk  is 'Cedric Morris Irises'.

    Cedric Morris, a nationally renowned painter who lived at Higham is Suffolk, grew about 1,000 new Iris seedlings each year. He produced at least 90 named varieties, 45 of which were registered with the American Iris Society.


    7.30 pm on Thursday 19th April in the Village Hall. As ever visitors will be most welcome.


Trip to East Ruston

On 20th June we make our visit to East Ruston Old Vicarage. This is a fascinating garden that has been continuously developed since 1973. There's so much to see and always something new. A garden you can visit over and over again. Full details and a booking form are in the April Rake's Progress.
