No worries Anne. Looks like 16 July for me then Dianne. 

Comment by Anne heap on January 14, 2018 at 18:19

I could do June if Cathie doesn't mind doing another month. 

I've  never hosted before and have been to a gv once only but Andrew is most encouraging and I'll give it a go.

But be warned , it is not really interesting . 23 June , Saturday is a good day for us.

Comment by Cathie MacLean on January 14, 2018 at 15:26

Sophie -you and I are on track to repeat last year, one after the other! I sent Dianne a message to say I'd do June. If there are newbies that want to host though, I can be flexible. I don't want to schedule them out of an opportunity if they would like to have folk over.

Im happy to host last sunday of May :)

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on January 14, 2018 at 13:12

I'm happy to take a month that's not filled.  Everybody has seen my garden by now.  Come on you lot!  Here's what I said last year and it is still true.

Dear wonderful, new members.  WE WANT YOUR GARDENS!!!!!!

Now the idea of a garden visit might be scary.  You might be thinking, "My garden would be an embarrassment! I'm not as good as those experienced gardeners."  

Well nothing could be further from the truth.  A starting garden makes the long-term gardeners feel fantastic about themselves because they get to offer all sorts of advice and pretend we know what we are doing!  In many ways, the more problems you have in your yard, the happier the experienced gardeners are.  

Catering is easy because most people bring stuff along to eat.  The give away plant table keeps half the crowd's focus for ages anyway (and you get to keep all the stuff that people don't take).  You don't have to be a professional presenter - I think on my first garden visit I just walked around and said, "How do I fix that problem?"

Hi Valerie, Thanks so Much, I will put you into the calendar today.

Comment by Matthew Bushnell on January 14, 2018 at 7:23

I would love to host a GV at some stage in the future, but right now I am afflicted with a bad case of C.H.A.O.S. (Cant Have Anyone Over Syndrome). I need to deal with a bunch of clutter to make my place accessible for a GV!!

Comment by Valerie on January 6, 2018 at 6:50

I'll have to survey the extend if devastation after I come back but I am thinking 17 March might work for us. 

Comment by Dianne Caswell on January 5, 2018 at 19:40

Sorry Valerie there is no link yet as I do not have anyone who has come forward who would like to host a visit.

Would anyone out there like to be the first to volunteer as I would like to have a few in before I go in for surgery. Please Personal Message me if you would like to consider a visit. It would be lovely to see some new or newly renovated gardens in the visits as well this year.

I will be adding all of the BCC Events and others to EVENTS this week end.

Comment by Valerie on January 4, 2018 at 23:59

Any 2018 link?

You are part of a very supportive community now.... shhhh... don't tell anyone....

Is there anyone who would like to Host a Garden Visit as Sept, Oct, Nov & Dec are still open. You may be a new gardener needing assistance in Design, Prep of a Fruit or Veggie Garden, Production, etc. or have a well established garden and just enjoy having gardening friends over. Our members love to visit gardens Big or Small, Permaculture to Wicking Beds. Our Swap Tables always filled with an interesting assortment of Plants, Cuttings, Seeds and Produce. Everyone always comes away with something be it a Pineapple or a Great Tip for Gardening or a Recipe for a treat you may have had from the Morning Tea Table. 

If you are interested in Hosting a GV please let me know via Personal Message. Happy Easter to All!!!!

Sophie is having her GV a little later in the year and Susan has been good enough to take her date. Hope to see a good roll up to Susan's Garden, there is always something new and exciting in her garden a real example of how to grow many Food Plants on a smallish block.

Comment by Dianne Caswell on February 7, 2017 at 6:28

The Elaine's GV Feb 5th Sunday, has had to be postponed until March 5th due to heat on Sunday. Hope to see a good roll up in March...

Comment by Dianne Caswell on January 25, 2017 at 6:24

As you can see by the 2017 Garden Visit Calendar, we are needing more willing Members to Host GV's for the months we have not filled. It would be lovely to have a few members from the Southside of town put there hands up. Also the members up Ipswich way, we would love to come and see your garden, young or old, formal or natural it is always great to see how different people garden. If you would like to host a GV please contact Dianne via Personal Message.

Why not wait until you have some holidays Rhondda and hold it at the weekend? You will definitely get more attendees.

Comment by Elaine de Saxe on December 20, 2016 at 13:40

Some will be able to come on weekdays. Originally I held 2 visits - 1 on a weekday and 1 on a weekend. Last one there were 2 visitors and we two. So I'm settling for just one on the Sunday. Where are you located? I am well out of town which makes it difficult for many visitors anyway whatever day of the week.

Comment by Rhondda Pearson on December 20, 2016 at 12:36
I would love to have you lovely people around, especially for your input on my ongoing garden building and design. My vegetable garden is next. I work weekends though and have Tuesdays and Wednesdays off. I don't know if this would work?
Comment by Lissa on December 16, 2016 at 4:35

I think Roger hit the nail on the head re north vs south for GV's when he mentioned that a lot of the south siders joined the Logan Garden group and started attending their GV's, not ours. Still it will be interesting to see if, now that Dianne is co-ordinating the group, more south-west gardens become featured.

Comment by Mary-Ann Baker on December 15, 2016 at 14:30

definitely agree Dianne - sorry off to your favourite place again tomorrow so very bust getting everything organised for a long quiet time so havent read all the post sorry - but do feel free to see if anyone wants to do a talk here in March .
