Gardening Club



We welcome all those with a love of plants, or an interest in any aspect of horticulture, for whom we arrange lectures, plant swaps and social evenings. Summer visits to local gardens, and sometimes further afield, are a regular feature.

We meet at 7.30pm on the second Wednesday in the month, usually from September to May, in the Methodist Chapel, Reynoldston (opposite the Post Office).

There is no need to be an expert or even an active gardener  – just a shared interest in plants and the natural world. The tea and biscuits at our meetings (included in the subscription) are a further inducement to join us!

The secretary has devised a programme for the 2015/16 season.
Keith Fuller (Tel 391120) can provide paper copies on request, and they are available at meetings.
New members are always most welcome.
The current annual Membership Fee is £7.00 per member, which includes refreshments at meetings.

Following our recent talk on ‘Bats of Gower’, further talks during our winter series will embrace more orthodox gardening topics, such as ‘RHS Garden, Rosemoor’ (10th February), ‘Some Italian Gardens’(9th March), ‘Herbaceous Perennials’ (11th May) and a talk by Alan Clark (from ’The Living Garden’) on a subject yet to be announced (13th April).

For the final meeting of our current session, we enjoyed an illustrated talk from a delightful couple of enthusiastic

gardeners from West Wales. Carole and Peter Whittaker hold the National Collection of Monardas (an attractive and bee-friendly hardy perennial, which is medicinally useful also). Beforehand, I suspect that many of our members were unfamiliar with Monardas. However, judging by the number of prized specimens being carted away at the close, our newly enthused audience will shortly be turning Reynoldston into the second Monarda capital of Wales!

No more formal meetings until Autumn, but suggestions for visits to reasonably local gardens will be circulated.
