Welcome to Burton Dassett Gardening Club

Covid 19 update August 2021: Although restrictions are now lifted and many of us have had both vaccinations for the virus, the BDGC Committee have decided to continue with the suspension of Gardening Club meetings for the time being. This is for several reasons: although the Village Hall is once again open, we know that some members are still not entirely comfortable to mix with others in a confined indoor space. We have not been able to book speakers for our 21/22 programme as we would do normally because of the uncertainty around when restrictions would be lifted and many speakers are not yet offering to do talks in person.

As we did last year we will not be taking subscriptions from members and we are not currently accepting new members.

We are hoping that we will be able to organise some garden visits in 2022 and possibly an outdoor event to celebrate our 25 years as a Club and will contact members with details nearer the time.

****************************************************************************************************************

BDGC is a small friendly club for keen gardeners of all levels of experience.

We currently have members from Burton Dassett, Northend, Knightcote, Fenny Compton and other local villages. In non-pandemic times we meet at 7.30 pm in Knightcote Village Hall on the second Monday of the month, from September to April, with guest speakers on a variety of horticultural topics. In the summer months we organise visits to local gardens and occasionally arrange coach trips to visit gardens further afield.

You don’t need to be an expert to join us* (*new membership currently suspended – see above). Our club is about making gardening interesting, maybe learning some new things and having a bit of fun along the way. Even if you are an experienced gardener, we will have topics to interest you as well as inspiration from garden visits.

Benefits of membership include affiliated RHS membership giving club members access to RHS offers and advice, and discounts at two local garden centres.

Guests are always welcome at our evening meetings. Just come along – we’d love to see you or contact us via the form on our contact page.
