PETT GARDENING CLUB

Pett Gardening Club meets every month (usually on the 2nd Tuesday).

 Our aim is to provide a friendly social club where members are always willing to share their gardening knowledge and experience.   In addition, we all benefit from the wealth of gardening knowledge we gain from our speakers and visits.

During the Summer months we normally visit gardens around Kent and East Sussex, and in the Autumn and Winter months talks are held in Pett Village Hall at 7.30pm.

New members are always welcome – the annual subscription for 2022 will be £10.00 minimum per member or £3.00 for visitors to any one meeting.  Due to the Covid-19 regulations the schedule for 2021 has had to be reduced and as a consequence the subscription for 2021 will be £5.00 per member and £3.00 per visitor at any one meeting. The cost of external visits and associated transport costs are not included in the annual subscription charge.

At times social events are held, including the Gardening Club’s famous Christmas Social!

The Garden Club committee is pleased to announce that we are restarting our summer and autumn programme for 2021 after long months of restrictions, beginning with a visit to Waterworks Cottages, another local garden and possibly the waterworks too, beginning at 10.30 am on June 8. The owner, Kristina Clode, is a garden designer and opens her garden for the NGS. The two gardens offer a perennial wildflower meadow, a pond, fruit trees, herbaceous borders, a small parterre and a vegetable garden among many other features.  We hope to see you there.  

Our schedule for the remainder of 2021 is as follows, assuming the Covid -19 restrictions are relaxed as currently planned: –

Tue 8 June Visit Kristina Clode – Waterworks Cottages, Brede. 10:30
Tue 13 July Visit Borde Hill Garden  (Provisional only) 14:00
