The West Meon Garden Club covers the West Meon, Warnford and Woodlands area and is open to all who have an interest in gardening.
It doesn’t matter whether you have years of gardening experience or are just starting off and not quite sure of what goes where! Gardening is so diverse, we never stop learning. There is nothing nicer than finding another enthusiastic gardener to discuss your ideas with. Gardeners are renowned for their love of passing on tips, advice and the odd cutting or two, plus of course, there is always loads of encouragement!
The Club host hosts a number of exciting events throughout the year;
- We hold a series of talks by interesting visiting presenters through the year.
- There is an annual visit to a formal garden.
- Each year a number of members open their gardens to the other members of the club for an evening over the summer.
- There is a bring and buy plant sale and supper in May.
The culmination of the events in the year is the West Meon Garden Club's Summer Show in August. All are welcome to enter. Remember to nurture your flowers and vegetables, practise your culinary skills and work your creative magic for the flower arranging, crafts and photo classes for this!
It's a fun day and entering your produce, whether flowers, vegetables, photography, cookery or crafts, is really worth the effort. There are children's classes as well, so do encourage them to enter. Lots of cups to be won, great camaraderie and, who knows, you could be a winner! Classes are open to non-members.
Take advantage of our reciprocal arrangement with the East Meon Garden Club whereby members of either Club can visit each other’s all for the price of one, so to speak. This of course widens our gardening experiences hugely.
