DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID19 SITUATION AND NEED FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING OUR MEETINGS AND ACTIVITIES FOR 2020 HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.
You can stay in touch via this website, and we now also have our Facebook page which you can follow.
Jeremy Pratt is doing sterling work publishing his Garden Blogs, which are listed along with the Newsletters and Angela's quizzes. You are welcome to forward Jeremy pictures for inclusion in the Blogs (email@example.com).
Our Annual Show will not take place, but we hope to have a non-competitive virtual show. You can send photos of your entries to Jeremy (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 18th July and he will collate a picture show for us all. The Show Schedule is available on the "Annual Show" page of this website.
For fun we will be holding a Sunflower Competition for:
The largest flower head, and
The best picture
Entries by photograph to Jeremy by 30th September.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed of any changes. Next year your subs will be less to reflect the lack of meetings this year.
Stay Safe. Ray Martin (Chairman)
Our meeting in February heard Chris Gibson giving a talk about Wildlife in Gardens. He has now written a blog on this subject which you can access HERE
Felixstowe and District Horticultural Society was formed in 1979, we renamed ourselves Felixstowe Garden Club in 2020. The aim of the society is to help, inform and interest our members in all aspects of horticulture and gardening. Our monthly meetings feature guest speakers in a variety of subjects, many are illustrated with colourful slides and others are of a more practical nature.
Society trips are arranged throughout the year to gardens and other places of interest.
We stage are staging a oneday summer show again this year, in addition to mini Spring and Autumn Shows for our members to exhibit.
We are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society, The Royal National Rose Society, the National Sweet Pea Society and to Suffolk Horticultural and Produce Association (SHAPA).
New members are very welcome, as are visitors to our monthly meetings.
