About

The Great Dalby Gardening Group was created in 2011 for the gardeners of Great Dalby in Leicestershire. The Gardening Group developed following the success of the first Great Dalby Open Garden Day which was held in June 2011. Together with delicious teas and pub lunches, we opened 17 gardens, an artist’s studio, the Parish Church and a willow weaving workshop. We loved the day and we raised money for charity.

Since the Open Garden event interested gardeners have got together  to decide on ideas for group activities and for a Christmas social evening at the local pub. We have developed a programme for 2012 which includes outings, a show, demonstrations, garden walks etc. Click on programme for details of the full programme. Meetings are usually held in the Village Hall on the last Thursday evening of the month. We have decided to have Open Gardens every two years, so it does not appear on this year’s programme.

We are a friendly and welcoming group where the emphasis is on gardening but where we all enjoy  social activities.
