Gardening Society

Evenley Gardening Society is one of the village's longest established organisations with eligibility for membership confined to the residents of Evenley, Brackley and the surrounding villages. The current annual subscription is £5 per household or £2.50 for a single household where one person lives alone. There is a meeting charge of £1 which includes tea or coffee and biscuits.

Monthly meetings cover a wide range of gardening topics and are addressed by visiting guest speakers. They are held in the Village Hall on the third Tuesday of each month, beginning at 8 pm, except in June, July and August.

The December meeting is traditionally a social occasion, including a visit from members of the St Georges Church Choir, entertaining us with Christmas carols.


Member benefits include day excursions to interesting destinations and for 2016 we visited Bowood House in Wiltshire on 4th June.

We hold an annual plant sale (free admission and parking). The society sources quality plants and shrubs from local independent nurseries. The 2016 Plant Sale took place on Saturday 14th May from 10.00am till noon.

There is also the opportunity for members to purchase flower and vegetable seeds at a substantial discount through the society whose membership card may also be used to secure discounts at selected local nurseries and garden centres. All the society's activities are publicised in its regular newsletter which is distributed free to members.

We welcome new members, just come along to our next meeting and enrol.
