Lodsworth  &  District  Garden  Club

 is for everyone interested in plants and gardening!


You are very welcome to join us no matter what type of garden

you have, be it large or small, established or new, a conservatory,

an allotment, a windowbox or pot plants on the patio. We want

to encourage interest in all types of gardening in our community, providing opportunities for our members to share gardening experience and increasing knowledge of plants and gardens.


We welcome new members to join the Lodsworth & District  

Garden Club; the annual subscription is only £5 for individual members or £7.50 for families.  Membership benefits include subsidised entry to our talks, workshops and visits, with discount

from a wide variety of local horticultural suppliers.

Please look at our contact page for details of becoming

a member of the LDGC and a full list of benefits.


We look forward to welcoming you!


   






As we approach the shortest day of the year in December you will need work to keep you warm outside, such as digging and tree pruning.

Check your winter protection and if you have a greenhouse make sure

the heater is working. Hopefully there are not too many jobs left to do

this year so you will have time for some fireside garden planning.


   1 Check your winter protection structures are still securely in place

   2 Check that greenhouse heaters are working

   3 Insulate outdoor taps and prevent ponds from freezing

   4 Prune open-grown apples and pears (but not those trained against        walls)

   5 Prune acers, birches and vines before Christmas to avoid bleeding

   6 Harvest leeks, parsnips, winter cabbage, sprouts and remaining root crops

   7 Deciduous trees and shrubs can still be planted and transplanted

   8 Take hardwood cuttings

   9 Keep mice away from stored produce

 10 Reduce watering of houseplants
