If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.

If ever there was a quotation that expresses life during lockdown, this is it! The current crisis has certainly ensured that many of us have been spending more time in the garden as well as reading a great deal.

On 20th March and then again on 16th April, we announced the cancellation of all events until September – a decision that was not taken lightly but which was inevitable in the light of events and government advice.

Nevertheless, Gill and the Kilmington Gardening Club Committee thank you very much for your ongoing support and our sincere hope is that you and your loved ones keep safe and well in the weeks ahead.

This compulsory cessation of normal life encouraged us all to work in the garden and when we went into lockdown the rain miraculously stopped! The weather has been perfect for gardening ever since, except that we would really like some rain now! Please! However, as gardeners we are able to take comfort in the beautiful plants and flowers all around us (thanks to all our hard work last year of course!).

Our last planned event before the current Covid-19 crisis took hold, was the talk in March, given by Karl Emeleus, Head Gardener at the National Trust’s Killerton House. Having worked at Killerton since 2007 and having been Head Gardener since 2014 Karl’s practical experience and passion for his job ensured that his talk on 13th March was very interesting. For a report on his talk, please click here.
 

Talk of the Month

Cancelled

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!
