Kilmington Village Show

Our marquee at the summer Village Show is always full of colourful flowers, vegetables and children’s exhibits, and the art and photography and home-made produce is displayed in the village hall – but not this year! However, our Autumn Show in the Village Hall on Saturday, 11th September will be just as colourful.

You are welcome to join us!

Thank goodness for our gardens! They have provided a haven when our lives were turned upside-down for almost two years. And now we can start thinking and planning for spring by planting bulbs. Here is a quick guide of when to plant your bulbs for a perfect spring time bloom:

• Narcissi: Sept-Oct
• Crocuses: Sept-Nov
• Hyacinths: Sept-Oct
• Muscari: Sept-Oct
• Allium: Sept-Oct
• Tulips: late Oct-Nov

Why are tulips later than the rest? Tulips need to be planted from late October through to early November to reduce the risk of them getting tulip fire, a fungal disease that withers and distorts the leaves. In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming you to the scheduled talk on Camellias by Club favourite, Jeremy Wilson, on 10th September, subject of course to restrictions in place.
 

What’s coming up in September

Friday, 10th September, 7.30pm: Camellias talk by Jeremy Wilson

Saturday, 11th September from 1pm: Kilmington Village Show including Celebration of your gardening achievements (in the Hall).

Good Gardening

Kilmington has fertile soil, soft Devon climate, and a long tradition of good gardening.

Since its foundation more than 60 years ago, the village ‘Produce Association’ has spread its influence far beyond carrots and cabbages, offering talks and demonstrations by experts who understand the needs of the novice with a window box as well as the gardener with an acre or two.

We hold a plant market, open our gardens, arrange visits and host a summer flower show as part of the Village Fayre, and are ready to share our enthusiasm for plants and gardens with everyone, old or young, resident or visitor.

 

Kilmington Kids’ Corner

This month there are ways to provide food for bees and other pollinating insects.
