Just when we thought we could start to plan for 2021, a third lockdown threw a spanner in the works. On the one hand, with the vaccine being rolled out, we could be forgiven for thinking that there is a light at the end of the Coronavirus tunnel but on the other hand new variants mean that uncertainty remains, making planning almost impossible.

The uncertainty has already affected festivals and shows – Glastonbury has been cancelled again and now the Chelsea Flower Show has been postponed until September and locally the Axe Vale Show is another casualty.

These are unprecedented and difficult times and the Gardening Club Committee, like many clubs, has been trying to navigate a way through. In spite of our previous optimism about being able to hold the Show in July, the current and possible future restrictions and the financial implications, have led us reluctantly to take the decision to cancel the Show.

We have not arrived at this decision lightly, but the health and safety of everyone involved is paramount. On a more positive note, we will make every effort to stage some sort of event in September, but cannot be more specific at this point. Watch this space!
 

What’s coming up in February

STILL STAYING AT HOME

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

There are lots of ideas for growing your own vegetables and flowers.
