Our aim is to learn, encourage, and share good gardening practice and to promote knowledge of related topics. We share a passion for nature and beauty, lovely gardens, and growing all types of flowers, shrubs and trees, and vegetables.

There has been a gardening club in Wotton under Edge for over 100 years. Previously known as the Wotton Horticultural Society, we changed our name a few years ago to provide a more user friendly image.

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month (except August). A varied programme is organised using the best speakers available and visits are arranged to local gardens, nurseries and places of special interest. Whilst the talks are mostly garden related, we also have occasional talks on some of the most beautiful parts of the world.

We like to think that we are the friendliest club in Wotton under Edge. We keep membership fees as low as possible (£12 for 2016 including tea and coffee at our indoor meetings) and visitors are especially welcome (normally £2 for indoor meetings).

At our indoor meetings, there is a table top competition; members may enter pot plants, cut flowers, garden produce and the like which they have grown or nurtured themselves. We also have a raffle with prizes donated by members and plant sales from time to time.

Enquires may be addressed to any of the committee members (see below). Also, members and interested parties can be kept up to date by email. The contact email address is wottonview@btinternet.com
