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.

FEBRUARY's GARDENING TIPS
Winter-flowering shrubs are always welcome during the colder months, but remember to prune them once they have finished flowering; February is usually a good time for this. It's also the month to winter-prune your wisteria, if you haven't already done so; cut last year's shoots back to 2-3 buds for a good crop of flowers in spring. The mild winter will encourage many plants to break dormancy early this year, so get your other winter pruning - such as free-standing apple and pear trees, and buddlejas - finished this month before they start growing again in earnest!
