Kings Bromley Gardening Guild

At the October meeting the speaker for the evening was Kathryn Robey, curator at the Dorothy Clive Garden. Members had enjoyed a visit to the garden in July and now could appreciate the story of the history and present development of the garden.
The garden was created by Colonel Clive in the early 1940s for his wife Dorothy who had Parkinson’s Disease and was being advised to walk as much as possible. Originally a sandstone quarry and fields, the 12-acre garden was planted with azaleas, rhododendrons, flower borders and trees but now is being developed to provide year-round interest with a new glasshouse and plans for an Arboretum and improved disabled access. Kathryn showed slides of the garden through the year, with camellias, magnolias, azaleas, rhododendrons, the daffodil walk, laburnum arch, rose border and summer bedding.
The speaker at the next meeting on 20th November will be David Tideswell talking on “Seasonal Garden Birds”. The Christmas Dinner will be held at The Boars Head, Sudbury, on Monday 27th November.
