New Program for 2022


Attached  (see link above) is an update to the 2022 programme.  
The Garden Club committee would be pleased to hear your views - negative or positive - on the proposed events and do let them know if there is something else that you’d like to see included.   Having had a successful trip to Kew this year, we are planning to include a trip to Wisley in next year’s programme.

As you will know by now,  the Garden Club’s first talk of the year is this Friday and it will feature Harriet Rycroft on how to plant up containers in your garden. Everyone is welcome whether or not you’ve advised us.    The bar will open at 7pm, followed by the talk at 7.30 but please bring cash as we cannot handle cards.     As usual, Garden Club members are free but guests are £5. 

If you haven’t paid your subs this year, Friday night will be an opportunity to do so.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Sibford Horti Club
Dear Friends,
I wanted to give you the details of all the forthcoming Horti Events for the next couple of months, so you will be able to put all of them in your diaries, and I will stop bombarding you with information!
2. Our trip to Rockliffe Gardens, Upper Slaughter.  8 June. £10.00. Leaving from Sibford Village Hall at 1.45, we will take our own cars to Rockliffe, a beautiful garden very rarely open to the public, and be given a private tour by the owner, Emma Keswick, or her gardener. Maximum of 30 people. No teas available. Please note, that coincidentally the garden is also open for the NGS on 7 June, 10.00am - 5.00pm and 29 June 10.00am - 5.00pm, teas available, at £7.50 a head, no guided tour. You decide which suits you best.

This is an all-day outing, leaving Sibford Village Hall promptly at 11.00am, return approx 5.00pm. The event is heavily subsidised by the Horti and only 35 places are available due to coach size. John Berry will be happy to take your money at other times if you can't make the plant sale on May or 07812 544851.
