*** OUR NEXT MEETING ***
Thursday 14 November 2019
7:30pm in Gilling West Village Hall
Eat Your Greens before they Eat YOU!
The Wonderful World of Carnivorous Plants
with Peter & Hellenentje Walker
An illustrated talk by the proprietors of Wack's Wicked Plants, a North Yorkshire nursery that specialises in unusual plants - and carnivorous ones in particular! Their passion for their subject, and their fabulous display, won them a Gold Medal at Chelsea Flower Show last year.
They'll be regaling us with terrific colour images of their collection, and bringing along a selection of their favourites for us to get up close and personal with. (Well, maybe not too close!)
Members free, non-members always very welcome at just £3.
Based in the charming village of Gilling West, just five minutes from Scotch Corner, we offer a lively programme of events, activities and visits for everyone interested in gardens and gardening.
Even if you're a complete novice - or don't have a garden at all - everyone's always very welcome at our meetings.
In fact Gilling Gardening Society is not just for gardeners! We have plenty of meetings that are of general interest - this year, for example, we'll be hearing about the work of the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust, taking a trip to the Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park and finding out all about the amazing world of carnivorous plants.
If you want to stock your borders or your greenhouse, members usually bring along a selection of seedlings, rooted cuttings and mature plants - yours for a modest contribution to Society funds!
Annual membership costs just £10, and visitors are always welcome to join us for just £3 per meeting (talks) or £4 (practical sessions) on the door.
