Members enjoyed two evening outings in June.

The first was to Meadow Farm Garden and Nursery. This was a great success, the weather was good and there was a good turn out of members.

The nursery gardens were full of luscious plants which could be purchased, and members wandered round at will enjoying the evening which ended with refreshments.

The second was to Preen Manor Gardens at Much Wenlock.

There was also a beautiful church in the gardens built in the 11th century which was worth the visit alone. These gardens were well tended and also ended with coffee/tea and cakes being served. It was another a good evening.

The next meeting on Sunday, July 28 at Clent Parish Hall, will feature a talk by Dr John Page entitled ‘The Joys of English Gardens’.

All are welcome. For more details, visit the website on clentgardening or contact chairman Pat Orme on 01384 394451.

The 67th annual Flower Show will be held on Saturday, September 7 in Clent Parish Hall.

All members, friends of members or any interested parties are welcome to attend as there will be lots to see and do.

There is also a section for children to enter including a Pizzetta, a natural collage, an invitation card to a party or a holiday photograph.
