Last Zoom Talk and Programme Update

Our last Zoom meeting (at least for now) is next Wednesday, 19th May 7.15 for a 7.30pm start.

Stephen Anderton, Gardening Correspondent for The Times will be talking to us on ‘Courageous Gardening’

“A fresh approach to gardening. Stephen investigates gardeners’ techniques, ideas and inspiration, in everything, from breeding and pruning to planting and design.  He shows remarkable gardens from all over the world and explains how their makers have single-mindedly planned and created exciting effects.  The many unconventional ideas on offer here make this one of his most popular lectures.”

It would be great if we could have as many as possible joining us as Stephen is one of our ‘Big Name’ speakers for this our 10th Anniversary year. So if you are interested in joining us and haven’t already done so, please send an email to so we can send you the Zoom invitation.
