2022 PLATINUM JUBILEE YEAR – 70 YEARS AS A SOCIETY SINCE 1952

We are an active society promoting a range of different activities for everyone interested in gardening. We host monthly talks provided by gardening experts. Details of talks for 2024 are under the Programme page. Details of any visits arranged can be found under Society Trips .

ONLINE COMPETITIONS The winners of the March competition have now been notified and details of the April competition announced. All details on the ONLINE COMPETITION page.

Our next meeting will be at Beckminster Church Hall on Wednesday 8th May. Samantha Hopes from Hopes Garden Plants is returning to give a talk on Roscoea – a brilliant but unusual member of the Ginger family. Further details on the Programme page.


The last meeting of the society was the Society’s Annual General Meeting running alongside our Spring Show. There was a good standard of entries for the Show despite the recent bad weather. Members also enjoyed a social get-together and buffet after the AGM. Prize winners are announced on the Spring Show page.


A PhD student from the University of London is seeking volunteers from the Society to help in a research project looking at pollinators in the garden. Full details and contact information are on the Gallery and Links page.


The Society is affiliated to the Tender Shoots Garden Network. New talks will be announced soon.

Details of all talks will be shown on the Tender Shoots page.


Sunshine and showers


Spring is in full swing, with tulips and flowering cherries in bloom. Expect the inevitable April showers this month but with sunny days too, when you can turn your attention to the veg plot. It’s an exciting month as you start to sow outdoors. Just watch out for frosts and keep any tender plants indoors for now.


. ….. The Royal Horticultural Society and BBC Gardeners World websites give reminders of jobs that need doing this month.


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