Happy New Year to all our members and visitors. Hopefully we will be able to manage more face to face meetings later in the year if the Covid situation improves.

Our next event in the Programme for 2022 will be (hopefully) our final Zoom meeting. Adam Pasco is returning to the Society to give a talk entitled Spring into Action and Get Ready for Summer. Adam will be giving guidance on how to prepare for the months ahead. There is also a Tender Shoots meeting on January 25, further details on the Tender Shoots page.

Membership for 2022 is now due for payment. As we are still currently not planning any meetings until March alternative arrangements are being put in place for members who have not yet renewed. Please refer to the Contact us/Membership page.

ONLINE COMPETITIONS The entries for the January flower competition have now been uploaded and members are asked to submit votes for their favourites. All details are on the ONLINE COMPETITION page.

January might be the middle of winter but as the days lengthen the garden starts to grow. Now is a great time to plan for the coming gardening year and to order seeds and plants. Enjoy the fresh air, on dry sunny days, and check your winter protection, stakes, ties and supports are still working after any severe weather. Also put out food for birds and leave some garden areas uncut, a little longer, to provide shelter for wildlife in your garden. 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 2022 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 2022 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.
