Growing and caring for plants is a particularly rewarding pastime which puts one directly in touch with the cycles of natural world.  


Our section on allotments gives information on local allotments and how to rent them.


The section on growing vegetables/fruit/herbs aims to tell you some of the secrets that successful exhibitors use so that you can match the quality of produce that is exhibited at our show.


The section on flowers/ornamental plants points the way to growing quality flowers for your own personal satisfaction and, if you feel so inclined, for the annual show.


While many of us have very wide interests in growing all sorts of plants some people enjoy specialising in a smaller number of families of plants and become very expert in growing them successfully.   If you wish to pass on your knowledge of growing any group of plants please let us know so that we can  further develop this site and pass on your knowledge and experience.
