Welcome to Worplesdon Garden Club

Worplesdon Garden Club is a friendly and enthusiastic club which meets every second Tuesday of the month from 8-10pm at Emmanuel Parish Centre, Stoughton, Guildford, GU2 9SJ.  Doors open from 7.45pm and you can find a map here.

We have a full schedule of speakers  throughout the year, educating and entertaining us on a diverse mix of Horticultural and Natural History topics.  Talks and slide shows are interspersed with refreshments and the evening provides plenty of opportunities to socialise and browse the plants on the plant stall and take part in the raffle for some fantastic garden-related prizes.

The Club also has a range of social events throughout the year including Garden Visits, Lunches, Coach Trips, Barbecues, and Horticultural Shows.

Visitors and new members are always guaranteed a warm welcome.  Membership is only £15 for the year from January (£8 from July). Please Contact Us if you would like any more information on our meetings or activities or to come along as a visitor (£3).

Club Meetings

Our next Club Meeting will be all about The National Collection of Chaenomeles  (Japanese Quince) with a talk by David Ford who holds the Plant Heritage National Collection of Chaenomeles with over 70 cultivars.  March and April are the perfect times to admire the striking and long-lived flowers of this versatile shrub as they adorn the bare stems of the plant; some maturing into delicious rounded quince fruits - perfect for quince jelly.  Our meeting is on Tuesday 12th March from 8pm at Emmanuel Parish Centre.

In February, our speaker programme continued with the 'inside scoop' on how to grow and prepare plants and vegetables for the Show bench with a talk on 'Preparing for Your Show' by Barry Newman.  Barry is a well known grower and show judge and has judged at RHS Chelsea.  Barry gave us an excellent and informative talk on how to get the best out of growing and showing both flowers and vegetables, and what a show judge is looking for in an exhibit.  He also passed on the very valuable tip of how to get the perfect entry of crisp, straight, equal length, show-winning runner beans!

The winter photographs from our Members' gardens can be enjoyed on the February Events page.
