July is often one of the hottest months of the year and a great time to sit out and enjoy your garden. Keep plants looking good by regularly dead-heading, and you’ll enjoy a longer display of blooms. Make sure you keep new plants well watered, using grey water where possible, and hoe off weeds, which thrive in the sunshine….. 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.
