A Report (& pictures) on the Recent Garden Society Outing to Daglingworth House from Jan Evans
The sun shone for us whilst we enjoyed a visit to the delightful gardens of Daglingworth House. The owners, David and Etta Howard, are more than keen gardeners, and we enjoyed a private escorted tour with Etta providing informative detail, ably supported by her gardener Bill. The two acre garden included a walled garden, temple, grotto, herbaceous borders, with the pond and cascade adding to the features of this lovely garden. A sunken garden and reflective pool are new projects being worked on during our visit, and I look forward to seeing it completed in the near future.
The Brimpsfield & Mid-Cotswold Garden Society, founded in 1971, serves the villages in the area between Gloucester and Cirencester. As well as our annual Show, we organise occasional outings for members, a spring plant sale and a summer garden party and hold winter meetings with a horticultural theme and a strong social element. Members benefit from a discount at Dundry Nurseries, Staverton and can take advantage of significantly reduced prices through our bulk order with Dobies Seeds.
We aim to be a friendly society and we welcome anyone with an interest, however general, in gardens and gardening.

JANUARY's GARDENING TIPS
Winter is a time when many gardeners keep a careful eye on the weather forecast, so that they can be ready to protect vulnerable plants if a cold snap is expected. Frost can, of course, damage stems and leaves, but it also causes moisture in the soil to expand as it freezes, which can push plant rootballs out of the soil. If you have any new plantings, or plants with shallow roots, it may be worth checking them after a frost to make sure that they are still firmly anchored, and tread them back in carefully if not. On the other hand, the roots of weeds are similarly affected, and so winter can be a good time to tackle even quite deep-rooted weeds; nettles in particular seem easier to pull up at this time of year. Try not to walk on your lawn in frosty weather, though; it can badly damage the grass.
