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.

AGM & Lunch
We had a good turnout again in February for our Saturday morning talk on Container Gardening with Harriet Rycroft.
Harriet gave us a lot of tips on how to make the most of our pots, and how important observations on position and plant suitability was. She finished with a demo of planting up a spring container.
