Meetings tend to be on the second Friday of the month in the afternoon. November to March the meetings will be in a hall and can consist of speakers, discussions on topics chosen by members and practical sessions and a seasonal quiz. In the summer months we plan visits to Flower Shows such as Cardiff or Malvern, gardens of historical interest and gardens of the National Garden Scheme, National Trust and RHS gardens. Each year we have visited some of our own gardens to get ideas. Plant and seed swaps are a regular feature from spring to autumn. You do not need a garden or even a window box just an interest in plants and nature.
