As part of the “dig for victory” campaign. It currently comprises about 600 members, mainly in the Chalfonts, and Gerrards Cross area. The club is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and the Bucks Association of Horticultural Society.
The club is entirely run by volunteers. We have a Garden Club Hut, which is open Sunday mornings.
This is not only a source of attractively priced garden materials for the members to purchase, but is also used to discuss gardening problems and pass on tips and information. There are monthly meetings, in St Peter Church Hall, which provides a series of expert speakers on gardening topics and is also an opportunity to meet people with similar interests.
Come and meet us.
We also have monthly meetings, where we bring in specialists to talk about gardening and related local subjects. Click on this link to access about meeting page.
