Ash Parish Garden Club

Ash Parish Garden Club started over 50 years ago and have always met at the Victoria Hall in Ash.  Currently we have nearly 50 members of whom the majority attend our regular meetings. We are proud to say that our garden Club is thriving where others are dwindling. We have a very friendly atmosphere and offer advice to anyone on any aspect of Gardening. Our meetings are either talks or demonstrations from well known authoritative RHS approved speakers. At each meeting we give members a free monthly magazine written and produced by ourselves and free tea/coffee. We hold 3 shows a year in April, June & September, and hold a Plant Sale every May. We also have half or full day trips and a 4 day trip  in June visiting National Trust Gardens, village gardens and gardens from the Yellow NGS Book, We have previously shown at Chelsea, and currently enter into  the “Ash in Bloom” competition with  hanging baskets on the Victoria Hall. With all these wonderful things why not join us? Come along to any meeting and sign up, it’s that easy. Meetings start at 8 pm.
