Clematis Named After Us

clematis

Lymm Gardening Club’s speaker on 19 April was the clematis enthusiast Ken Black.

During his enlightening talk, he brought out a beautifully subtle white and lime green clematis which, he said, he’d propagated as a new plant.To his delight it had flowered for the first time on the day he came to speak to us.

Ken proposed to call this brand new clematis ‘Lymm Gardening Club’ in our honour. And an honour it certainly is. He is going to register it with The British Clematis Society and hopes to be able to provide us with a plant of our own.

Here is Ken with Caroline Henderson, our Chair, and ‘Lymm Gardening Club’, a large flowered hybrid clematis.

Ken’s website is kenblackclematis.com and is full of useful information on growing clematis.

Village Hall Garden

As a garden club we look after the garden outside the village hall on Pepper Street. Alison Precious does a wonderful job of organising this and we ask members to volunteer to look after the garden for two week slots throughout most of the year.

We also have an area which is planted up by Caroline Henderson with herbs and vegetables which is a community area and anyone passing is welcome to help themselves to the produce.

We are very pleased that in 2023 Lymm Village was awarded a gold medal for the 'Lymm in Bloom' competition.
The Village Hall Garden forms part of the judging process for this so we were very pleased with the result.

A big thank you to all those who helped look after the garden.
We are always looking for volunteers to weed and look after the garden for a short period of time so if you could help please get in touch with Alison or any of the committee.
