Spring is in sight
This month there are signs of the approaching spring, with bulbs appearing and wildlife waking up as light levels and temperatures increase. There’s plenty to do indoors this month to prepare for the season ahead. Outdoors, as the garden comes to life again, it’s time to prune shrubs and climbers, such as Wisteria as well as evergreen hedges.
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.
