Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Blofield and District Gardening Club. If you live in Blofield in Norfolk or one of the surrounding areas and have an interest in gardening then this is the club for you. We meet once a month on the second Wednesday of the month for a presentation on some aspect of gardening provided by good quality speakers. These meetings are also an opportunity to socialise with other members with similar interests, to gain advice on gardening matters and to compete with other members in our monthly competition. We have also arranged discounts at local gardening suppliers. Why not join us at one of our meetings to try us out.

Open Garden at Gable End Cottage

On Sunday June 30th there will be an Open Garden at Gable End Cottage, Woodbastwick Road, Blofield. The garden opens at 2 pm. Entrance and free car park on Holly Lane. Admission is £2.50, children free. Dogs on leads welcome. There will be teas, cakes, books, excellent plants plus a wonderful garden to explore which will provide inspiration for your own gardening. All proceeds to All Saints Church Hemblington.

Our Next Meeting

On Wednesday evening, 12th June, we will be pleased to welcome Richard Clark of Panache Plants, who will be discussing Eucomis and other South African Bulbs. This should be a very interesting and colourful presentation and one which may well influence our thoughts about what will safely grow in our gardens, considering the predicted changes in our climate. The members’ competition will be “a flowering bulb – in flower”, so do get ready to pot something up to give him a good selection to consider.

Guests are always welcome to our meetings or becoming a member for just £7 a year, which also encourages entry into the Annual Summer Show, is easily arranged.
