Talk of the Month

Friday, 10th May – No Dig Gardening

by Stephanie Hafferty. Gold Club speaker

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

Don’t forget that if you have any gardening stories or photos to share with us, we would love to hear from you!
