Carleton Garden Club – Twenty Years and Still Growing Strong!

Carleton Garden Club were delighted to be able to celebrate their twentieth anniversary in the summer of 2014.

What started in August 1994 as a group of friends getting together in a living room is now a thriving club of people with a common interest in gardening. And that’s something to be jolly pleased about.

If you’ve not been to a meeting, why not go along?

    I man have contacted you a few years ago. I would be delighted to come and speak to your Gardening Group on any of a number of gardens. Please take a look at my website where you can find: 1. All the talks that are available; 2. All the engagements I currently have, and have had over the past year or two; and 3. Some testimonials, which I have only just put on the site.

    Hope I can help
