Gardening

Convenor: Sheila Thomas, tel: 0161 788 7540.

Venue and Time: The Gardening group, unless stated otherwise, is normally held at at Eccles Gateway, Room 3, and we meet at 10am-11.30am on the last Tuesday of the month.

The Gardening group is popular and if you are interested in joining, please contact Sheila.

We are a group of people with varying abilities and skills, who are interested in growing plants. We exchange cuttings and also perennials when they need to be divided. It is lovely to be reminded of friends by plants as you walk round your garden.

The visits to gardens are very enjoyable, mostly ones which look good all the year round, we usually go by coach in late spring or summer and these trips are much appreciated. Sometimes we use each other’s cars for a nearer garden like Fletcher Moss or Bents private garden.

At the end of the year, we get together to plan a list of topics for our indoor meetings, which are held at Eccles Gateway. We also discuss our more immediate problems.

We are a very friendly group and you can be sure of a warm welcome.
