Outings

2017

We had two trips in 2017, both followed on from speakers who came to Mere Garden Club.

Bristol University Botanic Garden  Following February’s excellent talk by Nick Wray, the curator of this garden which is situated north of Bristol, we organised a visit to this exceptional garden on Wednesday July 19th 2017.

The Walled Garden at Longleat  We visited this garden on August 16th, when we sampled the huge variety of Tomatoes and other fruit grown by Matt Simpson.

2018

Two trips were planned for 2018

Lower Severalls Garden & Nursery situated near Crewkerne in Somerset.  An afternoon trip, to include a cream tea, to this cottage garden style venue.  This will take place on Wednesday June 20th 2018 in the afternoon.  Leaving Mere at 1.30pm and sharing cars.

Pennard Plants, a walled garden in East Pennard, near Shepton Mallett, Somerset.  On Saturday July 28th they have an open day to see their Victorian Walled Garden (in particular their display of Agapanthus).  We will leave Mere at 10.00am and refreshments will be available nearby.
