Welcome to the Snitterfield Garden Club website

 

We are based in the beautiful South Warwickshire village of Snitterfield ( www.snitterfield.com ) just north east of Stratford on Avon. Snitterfield Garden Club has been in existence for 29 years and is a friendly and sociable group drawing members from surrounding villages and towns further afield.

 

The club offers an excellent programme of events, which in the winter months includes interesting and informative talks on gardens and gardening and in the summer months visits to beautiful gardens. In recent years our speakers have included Fergus Garrett of Great Dixter fame, Sir Roddy Llewellyn, Val Bourne and Chris Beardshaw.

 

The club is affiliated to the RHS which entitles us to

• Group entry to an RHS garden once a year

• Monthly copy of ‘The Garden’ magazine

 

Members were sorry to hear of the death of Gwen Smith aged 101. A lifetime member of Garden Club, she will be sorely missed.

 

 

See 'Programme' above for the 2021/22 programme of meetings and events.

 We have been invited to join Tender Shoots Garden Club network meetings. See Programme page for full list of talks and login details
