We meet in the Clydesdale Inn in Lanark where we have various activities including discussing our gardening problems, watching presentations by members, visiting each others' gardens, visiting public gardens, swapping cuttings and plants and imparting our knowledge and experience to other group members etc.
All skill levels
The emphasis of the group is sharing knowledge, tips and experiences. Gardening is fun, enjoyable and immensely satisfying when it all looks good as you look across your garden. Some people are in to vegetables while others focus on flowers. It is up to you!

Joys of Gardening
Mankind has been gardening for thousands of years from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to our much less grandiose attempts. Everyone would like to have a better garden but not just during the summer. Very few people are taught gardening so we have to share knowledge with others and learn from our mistakes.
