Garden Club News

(Should have been in the September News, but went astray – Ed.)

We have had several most successful outings this summer.

 The longest and furthest away was to the lovely Well Dressings at Youlgrave and another Derbyshire Village.

Several members were entertained by members of Radway Garden club in Ratley Gardens.  After the initial obvious confusion between the two venues, 17 of us were entertained by 23 of them on one of those rare lovely evenings in pretty, if steep, gardens, with excellent refreshments to follow.

Finally, last Thursday saw us at the “Old Coach House” in Avon Dassett where Mr. and Mrs. Graham Rice have created a superb garden in only 7 yrs.  Herbaceous borders, a scree garden, woodland area, fountains and many unusual plants made the whole a treat to see.  Afterwards much refreshment being needed we repaired to the local hostelry for supper and much convivial chat.

One Sunday in July, three public spirited members volunteered to “man” the interesting “Hill Close Gardens” which a group of people in Warwick are restoring to their former glory.  A quite fascinating project which is well worth a visit.  It is located near the Racecourse.
