West Wickham and Streetly End

West Wickham & District Gardening Club

The Club arranges monthly talks on the 3rd Monday of the month from September to April on a wide variety of subjects from particular plant species to gardening techniques, from individual gardens to the history of gardening. In the summer months there are evening visits to gardens in the local area and usually a longer day trip by coach to further afield. In May each year we hold our renowned Plant Sale on a Saturday morning in the Village Hall. In August we hold our Annual Show, open to all Club members and to all residents of West Wickham, Streetly End and surrounding villages. The Club has an account with a leading seed company that means that seeds and other items can be purchased at a discount.

The Club is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and Club members can access their advice service free of charge.
