There are no Society talks planned for September as we will be hosting our Annual Show instead (see below). The Tender Shoots network have got some talks planned and full log-in details are on the Tender Shoots network page.

The Annual Show took place on Saturday 11th September at Beckminster Church Hall with a reduced schedule due to continuing Covid restrictions. Details of the prize winners and photos are now available on the Annual Show 2021 page.

Now that Covid restrictions are easing it has been possible to arrange a number of visits over the summer. Full details on the Society Trips page.

COVID 19 UPDATE. “Live” meetings are still prohibited during the corona lockdown. But some Zoom meetings have been arranged and the Society are accessing talks by the Tender Shoots Network. These need to be pre-booked with Stella Gilmartin (see Programme page).

ONLINE COMPETITION The entries for the August competition have now been uploaded and details released for the September competition on the ONLINE COMPETITION page.

September is generally a cooler, gustier month than August and the days are noticeably shorter. While there’s not as much to do in the ornamental garden at this time of the year, if you have a fruit or vegetable patch, you’ll be busy reaping the rewards of harvest. It’s also time to get out and start planting spring-flowering bulbs for next year and you can collect seeds for next summer’s colour too. Make the most of the remaining warmth while you can!…. Both the Royal Horticultural Society and BBC Gardeners World website give reminders of jobs that need doing this month.

We are an active society promoting a range of different activities for everyone interested in gardening. We normally host monthly talks provided by gardening experts. Details of talks for 2021 are under the Programme page. Details of any visits arranged will be found under Society Trips .

So if you enjoy gardening or simply interested in it- It’s fun and inexpensive to join us. Membership details are on the Membership page along with details of member discounts available at local retailers/nurseries. A map showing how to find us at Beckminster Church Hall and meeting times are shown on the Find us pages.

The Gallery and Links page also has some tips for gardening and links to the Plant Hunters Fair and Shropshire Historic Churches open gardens website for gardeners looking for plants at reasonable prices and with expert advice available. The 2021 calendar for plant fairs can also be accessed through our Gallery and Links page for anybody interested in buying more specialist and unusual plants.

New members and visitor are always welcome. Talks are free to members and £4 to non members.
