Stocksfield Plants & Gardens Society

About

We are a small friendly society which aims to encourage interest in plants and gardens and to develop friendly contacts between gardeners and those with similar interests.

We are part of Stocksfield Community Association (SCA), where we hold our indoor monthly meetings from October to May. These are at SCA on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm; except in December when the meeting and AGM is on the 2nd Tuesday. We are also affiliated to the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) and have access to their advisory service.

Our members range from beginners to seasoned gardeners and bring a range of skills, experience and expertise. All are welcome and we enjoy sharing our horticultural experiences. Membership provides a good opportunity to learn new things and meet new people.

We have links to local projects with community groups in and around Stocksfield to develop the range of habitats to be found here.

Each year we have:

  • Talks from a range of speakers at our monthly indoor meetings between October and May with a raffle and plant stall
  • Visits to local gardens as well as coach visits to interesting gardens further afield. Each year we have at least two evening/weekend visits to gardens/ nurseries in the region, and two one day coach excursions
  • Annual Society news bulletins which are also available online
  • Books and DVDs available on free loan from our Society library
  • Seed catalogues with an excellent discount are available in October
  • Our annual Plant Sale in May with quality plants sold at reasonable prices, grown by our members, together with plentiful helpful advice. This is the main event of the year and the proceeds allow us to fund our programme of speakers, subsidise our trips for members and make donations to local community projects.
  • The intersociety lecture, where we join members of other local Gardening Societies.
