Gardening Club

Sudbrooke Gardening Club

 The gardening club is well established and has a membership of around 25 people.

Members meet at 7.30 pm on the 2nd Monday of every month except for January, February and November.

Two shows are held annually in the village hall;  the spring show in April and the autumn show in September.

The March and October meetings are held in the village hall, when guest horticulturalists speak to members. These meetings are usually open to everyone with an interest in gardening. 

A day trip out to a stately home / garden is usually planned for July.

Other meetings are held at members’ homes.

For further information about joining the club or attending events, please contact the club secretaries John and Iris Whitaker on 01522 751198

This Year's Village Competition

The competition this year will be for the Best Front Garden (as viewed from the public footpaths).  During the middle of July, Gardening Club members will circulate the village and select the best six gardens to go forward into the final judging stage.  Once again Scothern Nurseries have very kindly agreed to sponsor the event and do the final judging which will take place on Friday, 27 July.  A trophy will be awarded to the winner as well as prizes for both first and second placed front gardens.  Presentations will be made at the Village Autumn Show during the evening of Monday, 10 September.


So now is the time to start planning and perusing the catalogues in order to be ready for planting up when the threat of frosts is behind us.
