22nd October 2019
The breadth of plants available to gardeners today owes much to plant hunters of a bygone age. Brian Gomm will explain the role of Reginald Farrer amongst others in introducing new plants to Britain and particularly around his home in Clapham.
26th November 2019
Lowther Castle gardens have recently been the subject of a project to recapture and restore the 17th century layout together with layers of later design. Local historian, and supporter of Dales ponies, Janet Niepokojczycka will share with us some of the history and the more recent work of the Lowther Trust in producing a stunning visitor attraction.
As the club is celebrating its 30 year anniversary, this meeting will include a Jacob’s Join light finger buffet and wine instead of the usual mince pies. Former members are most welcome.
There is no meeting in December.

An evening visit to ever popular Lower Rowell Farm has been arranged for 6:30pm on 20th June. This is a return visit two years after the previous visit fell foul of the weather.

They should be rich in summer colours. Tea and biscuits will be available. National Garden Scheme charity donation of £6:00, payable on the night, applies. Visitors welcome; as always.
