EVERY gardening year has its challenges and 2018 has been no exception for Crediton Garden Club members!

Gardeners have had everything thrown at them and most of us are still smiling and anticipating the next gardening year.

Over the past few years on our allotment we have adopted the “no dig” approach. We have shifted bags of horse manure and allowed the worms to do all the work. This method has paid dividends this year, and the soil a few inches under the surface was still damp.

During the summer Garden Club members enjoyed visiting local gardens and we had a members’ garden party in the lovely garden of Celia and John Boyle.

If you would like to improve/hone your gardening skills why not come and join our group?

During the autumn/winter we host a series of illustrated talks at Crediton Library. We meet at 7.30pm and the cost for non-members is £2.50 or £12 to join for the year.

The next meeting, on September 25 will include Laurel Farm Herbs and Edibles from Whiddon Down. They write: “If you can eat it, we grow it”.

On October 23, “Cuckoo Pints, Lords and Ladies” - Ben Candlin will be speaking about Aroids.

On November 27: “The secret is in the soil” - David Hogan will share his knowledge with us. (Bring a soil sample with you).
