is for everyone interested in plants and gardening.
You are very welcome to join us no matter what type of garden

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.

We look forward to welcoming you!
