Welcome to the Henleaze Garden Club
Henleaze Garden Club will continue to provide monthly speakers via Zoom until face to face meetings are permitted to resume.
Andrew Mikolajski - Topical Tips for the Season
Wednesday 1st September
A welcome return, which may be by Zoom, for Andrew, who has over 20 years experience of writing, lecturing and speaking. Andrew's talk may include plants to enjoy, gardens to visit, pruning (or not!), likely pests and diseases etc.
Day trips and residential tours for 2022 to be announced later in the year
The Henleaze Garden Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month except for July and August. Meetings feature expert speakers who cover a range of horticultural topics. In December there is a members' only Christmas Event.
Meetings take place at: The Main Hall, St Monica's, Cote Lane, Westbury-on-Trym.
Doors open at 7pm and the meetings start at 7:30pm.
Car parking is available on site.
At each monthly meeting, we have a Sales Table. It works on a Bring and Buy basis: members donate plants, divisions, seedlings etc. Before and after the lecture, other members have the opportunity to browse and buy. In addition, the Organising Team buys wholesale bulbs in the autumn and spring to sell on to members. Any profit made is used to boost Club funds.
The two residential trips are still scheduled to run in 2021. These are subject to the progress of the Government's Roadmap to ease restrictions and will be dependent on guidance on travel, visitor attractions and hotel accommodation at the time of travel.
As well as monthly meetings, the Club publishes a quarterly Newsletter, giving news and details of events, and "Garden Club News" is emailed to members each month.
Club members receive a 10% discount on plant purchases at the Brackenwood Garden Centre (see Useful Links above).
Since we have not been holding meetings at St Monica’s in 2021, 2020 membership has been extended to include 2021. We hope to resume meetings later this year and will then ask 2020 members to renew their membership for 2022. Details will be sent out well before the resumption of meetings. Once members have had the chance to renew, those on the waiting list will be invited to join, until the membership limit of 230 is reached.
