SGC’s Annual Trip – July 2022

The Stonehouse Gardening Club’s annual trip  to an RHS garden is a very special one in 2022, as RHS Bridgewater is a recently opened garden and a great horticultural achievement.

Four years in the making and a quarter of a million plants in the ground, the RHS’s fifth garden, a 154 acre site, and first urban garden finally opens its gates to the public after a year delay due to the pandemic.

The Club will travel by coach  from Stonehouse to Bridgewater and back on 9th July 2022, which is a Saturday, and it is a day-long outing from 8:00 am to early evening. The trip is for club members, but there are a limited number of seats on the coach available to the general public for a very modest fee.

These seats are available on a first come first serve basis, so get in touch soon if you are interested. The coach is a large, and very comfy one, with lots of room for plants you purchase as well (in the luggage space below the seats).
