Bentworth Garden Club

Garden Club

Dear members, I thought I might give you a bit of an update of our thinking on how to move forwards with the Bentworth Garden Club this year. We have had the Bentworth Garden Club Membership and programme printed for this year.  As from Thursday 19th March, I will be putting  some  programmes in my outside letter box (by the front door) for anyone to pick up.  Maxine will also have some to give out.  We do not want any payment for this at the moment.   However, we will be asking you all for some money when we next see you.  (The membership is still £7.00).  We are dong this so that you can get your 10% discount from Garthowen Garden Centre, and if rumours are to be believed, I think we might be spending quite a lot of time in our gardens this spring! So the discount might come in handy. ...

Garden Notes – Spring?

Garden Club The Villager

Spring has come so early this year. I am writing this at the beginning of February (Jill likes her contributions in good time). The daffodils that should follow the snowdrops are so tall they are hiding them. The early crocus and iris could not wait and are out with the aconites. My camellias are showing colour in their buds and cornus mas is out. The birds are singing and this morning I saw two hares chasing each other around. ...

Farm Diary

The Villager

I hope everyone has survived the storm Ciara reasonably intact. There are a few trees down but nothing too horrendous. In spite of the rain and the wind the birds seem to be looking for nest sites and pairingup. We have various nest boxes scattered around the garden and have noticed a pair of blue tits taking great interest in one of them to the extent that they have started building a nest. We just have to hope that the weather does not now turn very cold and kill any chicks that may hatch early. ...
