A variety of events are held throughout the year. These include regular meetings, shows, visits and a plant sale. Visit our Calendar to see what's on.
Our monthly meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month in the Stour Hall at The Exchange, Old Market Hill, Sturminster Newton. Our talks our varied and are not necessarily strictly of a horticultural nature. There is a plant sales table, a raffle and refreshments. Find out more about meetings.
We hold a Spring Show in March and a Summer Show in July, both at the Exchange. There is a competition at our monthly meetings in which members are invited to enter. The overall winner at the end of the year receives a trophy and receives a free subscription for the following year.
Our annual Plant Sale is held in May adjacent to the Railway Gardens in Station Road. Additionally, there is normally a plant sales table at our annual monthly meetings.
There are normally two visits to Castle Gardens where we are given an instructive talk and members can take advantage of their discount cards. Usually two visits to gardens of interest during the summer months and often a visit to a members garden. In December we have our annual Christmas Dinner, catered for by the committee and for which members pay a modest charge.
