From Mark Diacono’s ‘New Kitchen Garden’ (Mark led the garden team at River Cottage) to perfect compost and the ever-popular Gardeners’ Question Time…this season Lympstone Garden Club has something for everyone.

Most events take place in Lympstone village – usually in the Village Hall.

But do check each diary date below – and on the Calendar of Events – for exact details, as times, days and venues vary depending on the nature of the event.

Entry is £3.00 on the door unless otherwise stated – for Saturday events, demos and tours we advise booking in advance.
