Lymm Gardening Club

Welcome

Thank you for visiting our site, we hope you find it helpful and look forward to seeing you at one of our meetings.

We are a friendly group with a common interest in gardening. We meet each month and our talks are varied with a wide range of excellent speakers, on all aspects of gardening.

Members also have the opportunity to join zoom meetings at various times in the year and listen to speakers from other parts of the country.

We have a sales table which sells various gardening sundries and often plants. As well as speakers we also have trips and visits to gardens through the summer months, a large plant sale for charity and an annual meal.

Members recieve discounts at some local nurseries and garden centres (see bottom of this page for details.)

We also have an RHS card which can be borrowed by members - please enquire at any meeting.

    'The Resilient Garden and Climate Change'

    by Howard Drury.

    Howard is a Horticultural Broadcaster, Speaker, Lecturer, Writer, Adviser and Consultant.
    He was born in Lincolnshire, started selling lettuces at 6 years old and worked at local nurseries before going home after school.
    He trained at local Agricultural colleges before going on to Edinburgh Botanic Garden as a student, leaving with honours and all but one of the top awards.

    He then moved to Birmingham, working for 20 years as a Horticultural Training Officer and working as researcher and presenter on Central TVís Gardening Time for 611 episodes.
    Today he still writes, runs gardening clubs and gives appearances throughout Britain in addition to giving horticultural advice and running gardening holidays around the world.
    He was closely involved with ExtraCare Charitable Trust, where for than 20 years they have been using gardening as a therapy in the form of a gardening competition.

    For many years he has been closely associated with Ashwood Nurseries, which gave him access to John Massey's garden which in turn provided him with a wealth of horticultural excellence that is incorporated into many of his presentations.

    Today he uses the latest computer, projection, and audio technology to make his talks much more of a total horticultural experience to be remembered rather than just another gardening talk!
