The society was formed in 1996 and currently has 30 members who meet in the village Memorial Hall on the second Wednesday of the month most of the year. Meetings start at 7.30pm and after a presentation by a guest speaker refreshments are served.

Speakers cover all aspects of horticulture and nature. Recent subjects have included spring flowers, lilies, carnivorous plants, roses, and vegetables. Birds, bees and garden worms have also featured. In addition, there are ‘garden’ talks, on places such as Torre Abby gardens, Dartington and the Keukenhof gardens in Holland.

We organise half day visits, usually around 2pm, to local gardens within an hour’s self- drive. This year we have been to Fast Rabbit Farm near Dartmouth and Bitton House Orangery at Teignmouth.

There is a Mini Show every August followed by a Dutch Supper and an annual New Year lunch at Dainton golf course restaurant.

New members and visitors are very welcome. Annual membership is £5 per person and there is a £3.50 entrance charge (£5.00 for visitors) to each meeting.

For more information please contact: Christine Ashton, Secretary, tel: 01626 364543, or Richard Fitzgerald, Chairman, tel: 01626 337814
