Vine Weevil

Club member Peter Lynch's  second article deals with helping plants recover.

‘We love November for its dignity in decay .. an explosion of vermillion leaves, a rattling of berries and a graceful final curtain call of faded summer.’ 

Words by James Alexander-Sinclair.

New Outreach Projects!

We have now "signed off" on the Orchard Garden project and we are looking for a new venture. We feel it is an important element of the Foxrock & District Garden Club that we participate in some way in the community. We would love to use our combined gardening skills to help make a beautiful outdoor space for some group of people. It may be planting up window boxes or something a little more ambitious. We will take our time over the winter and explore various options. So, please let us have your ideas- all suggestions more than welcome.
