Gardening Group



We meet in the Crown 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.

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.


Group Leader's Comments

"Within the Group there is a variety of gardening knowledge and experience and that mix seems to work well as we have become a very happy and friendly bunch of amateurs."
