Gardening Club Trip – 3rd July 2017

Our Annual Plant Sale in May was another great success with probably a record number of top quality plants on offer, a good crowd and good weather! We are still awaiting the final figure of our takings but there will be a donation of about £140 to the Katharine House Hospice, its stall made £23, and the remaining plants will be contributed to its Open Day. Our members worked really hard before, during and after the event to make it all such a worthwhile and happy occasion, which is what teamwork is all about.
Our thanks and appreciation go to them and to the local businesses below for their support and generous contributions (including raffle prizes) without which it would not have been the success it was.

  • Smiths of Bloxham Sharlyn Interiors
  • The Bloxham Nursery
  • Wykham Farm Shop
  • Revamp Hair Salon
  • Quarry Nurseries
  • The Loft The Joiners Arms
  • Hunt Bespoke Kitchens
  • The Elephant and Castle

Our next event is our second Summer Garden Visit, this one on Monday 3rd July to Pettifers at Lower Wardington, Banbury. It has taken 15 years to evolve, and has a peaceful feeling that
comes with extraordinary views over the landscape. Now mature, this is a plantsman’s garden and there is plenty of interest all the year round. Entrance is £8, which includes an
introductory talk, an accompanied tour around the garden, tea or wine afterwards. We should arrive by 6.45pm, leaving Bloxham (meeting outside the Elephant and Castle
as usual) at 6.15pm.
