We are an active society promoting a range of different activities for anyone interested in gardening. We have monthly talks provided by gardening experts and a complete list of the speakers for 2020 can be found under the Programme page. A number of visits will also be arranged for later in the year and details will be found on the Society Trips page.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 11 December at Beckminster Church Hall. This meeting will include a talk from the Ellie Micklewright, RHS Young Gardener of the Year 2018 followed by a “hands on” activity.

RHS YOUNG SCHOOL GARDENER OF THE YEAR Ellie Micklewright from Newport Girls High School, Shropshire, England

Ellie’s passion for the great outdoors led her to start a weekly school gardening club from scratch, with very little equipment or resources at her school in Newport. Under her own initiative she secured funding and has since gone on to organise and plan all gardening club activities and projects. She now has a committed team of 40 students who regularly attend gardening sessions.

Ellie’s talk will be followed by a practical “hands on” session making Xmas table decorations. The Society will provide moss, oasis and saucers but participants are asked to provide their own secateurs and foliage. Mince pies and coffee will be provided free of charge.

Ellie’s talk is scheduled to start at 7.30pm and the “hands on” activity at approx. 8.00pm.

Full list of winners and photographs of the Annual show are available on the Annual Show 2019 Results page.
