The Kensington Gardeners’ Club, founded in 1962, welcomes everyone who has an interest in gardening from those with large gardens to those with just a pot on the windowsill. Membership is not limited to residents of Kensington and Chelsea and is affiliated with the London Garden Scheme.
The Club meets five times each year at the Lecture Theatre at Kensington Central Library, W8 7RX (Phillimore Walk entrance). Doors open at 2pm and the meetings start at 2.30pm. Members learn about plants and gardens in the company of like-minded people. The Club arranges talks from well-respected gardening professionals on a wide variety of horticultural subjects. These talks are usually illustrated with slides or films and are followed by a question and answer session.
Tea and biscuits are served after each meeting for a nominal sum. Members have the opportunity to chat with the speaker and to get to know fellow gardening enthusiasts.
From April to September the Club organises outings by coach and local transport to interesting gardens. Previous trips have included Sissinghurst, Great Dixter, London City gardens and the Garden Museum as well as overnight trips to East Anglia and the Cotswolds.
The garden competition is held in the summer and members are encouraged to enter for the following categories:
- Larger Gardens
- Patios and Front Gardens
- Roof and Container Gardens
Kensington Gardeners’ Club membership is £15 and trips are £30. Why not come along to the next meeting for a small charge of £5 to meet the Club?
