Garden Groups 


Meeting Times

Two groups both meet 3rd Thursday, 2pm - monthly


Various venues

Garden Group 1

We are a lively group who all share a love of gardening, plants and gardens in all their forms. During the summer we go out to visit fairly local private gardens of many differing types and during winter months enjoy an interesting collection of talks in the library. In July we enjoy a full day combined visit (with Garden Group 2)to venture further afield and in October we hold a Plant Sale with tea and scones to which we bring our spare plants to sell to raise funds for a nominated charity.

Garden Group 2

Between April and September we visit Derbyshire and South Yorkshire gardens open for the NGS for ideas and inspiration and to enjoy the plants, cake and drinks!! Between October and March we meet in the Chesterfield Library Theatre for garden talks/presentations. We organise a joint day's coach outing with Group 1, usually in July, to visit a large well known garden further afield.
