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.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, 13th June, when Lesley and Phill Webdale from the Norfolk & Norwich Horticultural Society will be discussing “What affiliated membership of the Society can offer you!” The members’ competition will be “a succulent or cactus in a pot”. Our speakers are also suggesting that members bring along a pot plant or specimen flower or flowers in a vase, so that preparing items for exhibition in a show can be discussed and demonstrated.
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.
