Headline News

Wind and rain did not deter 59 members of the Kilmington Gardening Club from gathering to review the year at its AGM and Social on Friday, 9th November, when our President, Sydie Bones gave her farewell address to the club that she has helped to nurture for many years.

In her illustrated review of the year, the Chair, Dr. B. J. Lewis (BJ), highlighted the many interesting talks during the year on a diverse range of topics covering different aspects of gardening from Grasses to Salvias, from being a ‘laid-back gardener’ to answering the question ‘How did it die?’! There were half-day visits to Bickham House, where Julia Tremlett followed up her talk to us by showing us round her superb garden, and Chideock Manor – only a short drive from Kilmington and a hidden gem! Further afield, we had day trips to Cranborne Manor and Knoll Gardens, with its astonishing collection of grasses. The plant market in May was well-attended (people were queuing to get in!) and the plants were snapped up in record time.

After a gap of one year, Kilmington Open Gardens returned, and visitors, both local and from further afield, took the opportunity to visit the allotments and a wide range of gardens – some old favourites, some new ones – all of them interesting and inspirational.

Whats coming up in December

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!
