Waverley Garden Club is one of the largest Garden Clubs in Victoria made up of people who are interested in many different aspects of gardening.
At our monthly meetings we have different guest speakers each month covering topics such as vegetables, gardening products, fruit and ornamental trees, native plants, annuals, bulbs, orchids, camellias and roses. Speakers often bring samples of plants to show us what is available. We also have a Topical Notes segment at meetings to tell us what to do in the garden for the next month.
A feature of our monthly meetings is the blooms, plants and produce competition where members bring exhibits from their gardens. This is like a mini show each meeting and is a source of enjoyment for both the exhibitors who compete for prizes and inspiration for members who see what is growing in local gardens. It is a great way to get ideas for your own garden and to exchange information about how to grow these beautiful and interesting specimens from other local gardeners.
The comprehensive free library is available to members who may take books out on loan month to month. We also have swap and share and trading tables at meetings where members can swap, share, buy and sell plants - make sure you arrive early to snap up the bargains!
Our newsletter is sent out each month one week before meetings and includes information about our forthcoming meeting plus other news and information about plants and gardening as well as upcoming events.
We are a friendly group of people who have a common love of plants and gardens. We encourage questions and can usually find an answer from among our more experienced members.
