About us

Our gardening club of ca. 150 members, as with many other gardening/horticultural clubs and organisations, is made up of a wide cross section of horticultural experience and interests. From the expert to those merely active in their garden to those who just like to look at and appreciate gardens and plants.

Our Outings

Several outings a year and local garden visits were initiated in 1976. These continue today in the form of a day trip by coach, three times during the summer months.

The Walled Garden & Spetchley Park Gardens

This C19 Walled Kitchen Garden, reawakened in 1995 is a peaceful oasis near the centre of Worcester. A tapestry of culinary and medicinal herbs, fruit of all sorts including medlar, mulberry and quince, vegetables and flowers are all grown organically. History is at the centre of the rescue and evolution of this enclosed garden. Featured in Kitchen Garden magazine.


Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew:

Kew is London's largest UNESCO World Heritage site offering unique landscapes, vistas and iconic architecture from every stage of the Gardens' history. Set in 326 acres of beautiful grounds it contains the world’s most diverse collection of living plants, growing out in the landscape and within our glasshouses and nurseries.

Trentham Park Gardens:

The contemporary revival of the famous Italian Gardens was led by renowned designer and multi-Chelsea gold-medal winner Tom Stuart-Smith. To the east of the Italian Gardens are the Rivers of Grass and the adjacent Floral Labyrinth.
