Wickham Market & District Gardening Club

Let's go

Our Club

Anyone interested in learning a little more about gardening is most welcome to come and join us.  Club membership is neither expensive nor in any sense exclusive.  Our Membership Secretary will be pleased to give you more information.  You can contact us by email or through our contact us page.

 

Under normal circumstances we would hold meetings in Wickham Market Village Hall (IP13 0HE) at 7.30 pm on the third Thursday of most months, with speakers on all sorts of garden related topics.  We make no charge for occasional interested visitors, so why not come along and give us a try?

We also arrange visits to interesting gardens and nurseries during the summer months.

On the second Saturday in September we hold a Flower and Vegetable Show in the Wickham Market Village Hall.  This is open to the public from 2 – 5 pm on the Saturday and the Sunday. We are always keen to attract new exhibitors to our Show: both experienced growers from the surrounding area and those who may be new to the idea of Showing their produce.  Our Autumn Show page has much more information.

There is a monthly newsletter called Rake’s Progress that all members receive.  This has reports on recent activities and details of future attractions, together with news of local events, gardening tips and weather reports. The Club is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society.  To see the latest Club News click here

Upcoming Events

Annual Plant Sale, Thursday 19th May 2022

The Committee has reluctantly concluded that we do not have sufficient manpower to run the Plant Sale in the Village Hall this year, nor is it certain that we would get sufficient customers coming to the Hall to make the sale viable.

The arrangements for the Plant sale will therefore be as follows:
  • The Sale will be held at 161 High Street, Wickham market from 6.00 pm on Thursday 19th May (the original date).  This will be advertised within the village.
  • Plants for sale may be brought to 161 High Street at any time from 9th May
    May  onwards. They can be left inside the garden on the grass to the right of the gate.
  • The Sale will remain open until most of the plants are sold, which is likely to be 7 – 10 days.

June Meeting, Thursday 16th April 2022

Our speaker for June, 7.30 pm in the Village Hall, will be Jim Paine, from Walnut Tree Nursery  in Arttleborough.  His topic will be a grand tour of Botanic Gardens around the World.
