Mickleton gardening club is a thriving village organisation with over 100 members and provides monthly events throughout the year every 3rd Wednesday at 7pm in King George's Hall in Chapel Lane, Mickleton when we can meet in person, or via Zoom where that isnt possible. We aim to appeal to anyone interested in gardens, gardening and visiting gardens. Our members are of all ages and abilities so whether you're dipping your toe into container gardening or a seasoned horticultural expert you'll find something to interest you.
Our evenings normally follow a common format with the opportunity to have a cup of tea or coffee whilst you browse the plant stall, buy your raffle tickets and admire the entries to the competition for that evening. Our speakers will start at 7:30pm and normally talk for around an hour. The evening concludes with the drawing of the raffle, results of the night's competition (usually a current gardening plant or photograph) and planning for trips and other events such as the Spring and Summer Shows and our Open Gardens evening.
We don't fill the evenings with Latin names for plants but just aim to bring together people from Mickleton and surrounding villages who gain enjoyment from their gardens or listening about others'.
We are also pleased to support and encourage the children and young people of the village to garden, including those in the primary school and in Mickleton’s “Young Gardeners Club” who tend two allotment sites in the village.
We look forward to welcoming you at one of our events in the near future.
