'A Year in the Life of a Vegetable Gardener'
with David Allison of The National Vegetable Society
Nothing beats delicious, fresh, veg. from the garden or allotment!
And if you're keen to get started on growing your own - or you want expert tips on how to up your game - you simply can't afford to miss this meeting.
David Allison is a former Chairman of The National Vegetable Society, writer, RHS judge, lecturer, award-winning exhibitor and all-round veg-growing maestro. He'll talk us through his gardening year, tell us about his favourite varieties of fruit and veg and share a lifetime's advice on how to get the best results.
Got a veg-growing conundrum, or just want a few pointers? Bring your questions along - David is sure to have an answer!
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.
