Newtown Linford Gardening Club

The Gardening Club was formed in May 2002 in response to a demand clearly shown in the Village Appraisal. Now we have over 100 members.

We have a full, interesting and varied programme. We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm in the large hall at the Village Hall in Newtown Linford.

We have held our open evenings for several years now and they have proved very popular. We have had talks from David Howard, Head Gardener at Highgrove, and Nick Hamilton from Barnsdale. Since then Christine Walkden and Adam Frost have spoken to a packed room and more recently we have welcomed Chris Beardshaw, Fergus Garett from Great Dixter and Anne Swithinbank. There are several more of these events already planned for future years with other prestigious gardening personalities signed up to come to our village.

We have also visited some fascinating and well-known gardens including RHS Wisley, Kew, John's Garden, Coton Manor, RHS Harlow Carr, RHS Hyde Hall and Highgrove. We have also been behind the scenes at Wyevale and other nurseries which specialise in particular plants of groups of plants.

New members and visitors are welcome, for full details contact Secretary Anne Couling on 01530 242452 or email 32couling@gmail.com.
