SEPTEMBER's GARDENING TIPS
We’re now officially into autumn, and it’s time to plant most of your spring bulbs (but leave tulips until November at the earliest). Hold off planting winter bedding such as winter-flowering pansies or primulas; they will peak too early if put in now. There’s still time to sow quick-maturing salad crops such as rocket before the weather turns too cold; and if you have any pea seeds that won’t keep until next year, consider sowing them in a seed tray indoors and harvesting the young shoots for a trendy salad ingredient.
PICTURES FROM THE GARDEN SOCIETY'S ANNUAL SHOW
SATURDAY 31st AUGUST 2019
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.

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.
One of our Annual Show judges - Carolyn Edwards, received expressions of interest from members and visitors about having a go at patchwork and come to one of her meetings. Guests are always welcome at these meetings and they have speakers or demos most months. To find out more click here to take you to the website.
