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 November Meeting


    Our speaker for November is Andrew Brogan whose 'exotic' garden at Henstead the Club visited in 2011. Subsequently Andrew spoke at our March 2013 meeting. He is certainly a lively and enthusiastic speaker and it will be very interesting to hear how his garden has further developed.

    7.30 pm as usual in the Village Hall Thursday 16th November.  Visitors welcome - we make no charge for entry.


  • No December Meeting


    Our regular date would have fallen far to close to Christmas and the Committee therefore decided that we would not hold a meeting. Watch out for further details of our January meeting when Richard Anthony of Cruise Chiropractic will be giving (perhaps much needed advice) on gardening with the aches and pains!


41st Annual Autumn Show

We very much enjoyed Matthew Long's (much awaited!) talk in October. He was a most interesting and informative speaker and he'd brought along a splendid array of bulbs for sale. Many bags of bulbs went to good homes on the night!
