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!

Gardeners have had a lot to cope with this spring! According to the Met Office, April 2021 had seen its highest level of air frost in 60 years in the UK. ‘For gardeners and growers there were also a record high number of ground frosts in April with 22 days compared to an average of 12 days.’

In addition, April 2021 will be remembered as being one of the driest Aprils on record! As if that wasn’t enough, in May Britain was hit by the highest rainfall for five years. The Met Office commented that ‘these are quite unseasonable conditions, strong winds, heavy rain, cool temperatures.’

But at last, at the end of May some respite came with glorious sunshine and warmth. No wonder plants are confused! Many gardeners report late flowering of plants and shrubs and some frost damage but thankfully everything is really getting going now (and so are the weeds!).
 

What’s coming up in June

We are planning for our return in July….

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.
