Gardening Club

Bickleigh Gardening Club meets on the second Monday of most months from March to November at 7:30pm in Bickleigh Village Hall for specialist talks (mainly on gardening but sometimes on wildlife topics), with some of the speakers bringing along plants for sale.  There are also refreshments, a raffle and a Flower of the Month competition at each meeting.

There is an annual lunch in January and the AGM plus entertainment in November.  Our Plant Sale is on the morning of Saturday 14 May but unfortunately, we may not be able to have our usual coach trip or Garden & Craft Show in 2022.  If this changes, we’ll update the website and advertise.

Membership is £10 per year with non-members paying £2 to attend an individual meeting.

We would be very happy to welcome you to our friendly group - you don’t have to be an expert gardener to join!

If you would like further information, please contact one of the Secretaries, Wendy Baker on 01884 855548 or the Treasurer, Judith Williams on 01884 855093.
