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.

DECEMBER's GARDENING TIPS
As winter draws on and the weather grows chillier, many of us fill up the bird tables and feeders to help our feathered friends through the colder months. You know, of course, that we not only need to put out water too, but also that bird baths must be cleaned regularly with a weak solution of disinfectant to prevent the spread of avian diseases; but don’t forget to clean the feeders as well. Dunk them in a bucket of water with a few drops of disinfectant or bleach and give them a scrub, then let them dry before you refill them; bird tables and any hard surfaces, such as patios, where birds congregate to feed should also be kept clean, and any old uneaten food should be cleared up and disposed of. And while you’re out cleaning, remember to clear old nesting material out of nestboxes and give the insides a scrub, so that the birds have a clean place to roost on cold nights!
