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.
Our Club meets at the Margaret Harker Hall, Yarmouth Road, Blofield at 7.30 pm on the second Wednesday of each month, except in January, February, August and December. Speakers give talks and demonstrations on various subjects connected with gardening. Visitors are very welcome to attend any meeting for a fee of £2.00 per evening.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday evening, 11th July (from 7.30 pm) when Andy Thacker of Landscape Services, Wroxham, will be discussing “Planning and landscaping a garden”. Members are encouraged to bring along a photograph of a garden – any garden, not necessarily their own – for the in house competition.
Members are also invited to complete and bring their entry forms for the vegetables, flowers, fruit, cakes, bread, preserves etc. that they wish to enter into the Show, which will take place on Saturday 14th July. Donations of raffle prizes, bottles for the bottle stall, cakes and plants to sell will be much appreciated.
Our next Summer Show will be on Saturday, 14th July, 2018, at Margaret Harker Hall, Blofield. The schedule and rules are available under the Summer Show tab above.
The 2017 Summer Show which took place on Saturday 15th July at Margaret Harker Hall, Blofield was a tremendous success. To read a full report by Show Secretary Sylvia Nelthorpe CLICK HERE.
