West Bergholt Gardeners

West Bergholt Gardeners are affiliated to the RHS

Large garden, small window box, devoted gardener or just a passing interest? Why not join your local gardeners club?

Our members are an informal and friendly group of people who meet on the 3rd Monday during the months September to December and February to May. At these meetings they listen to advice and gain inspiration from interesting speakers on a wide range of topics relating to gardening and gardens. Coffee or tea plus a generous raffle (£2 for 3 tickets) are included too. They are always happy to welcome new members or occasional visitors so, if you share a love of plants and flowers, please come along to join in. The programme for the remainder of the season is below.
