The Dulwich Society Garden Group
The Gardens Group is a special interest group of the Dulwich Society members.
What we do:
- In March each year we publish a 36 page booklet ‘Dulwich Gardens open for Charity’. This booklet gives the date of opening, photographs and other details of over 40 local gardens, which we encourage you to visit. The promotion of these visits is our key activity. Apart from the enjoyment of the gardens, you can learn a lot from these visits. You will find new and interesting plants and find out where and when to plant them. In this ‘going greener’ age you can find out which are the best fruit and vegetables to grow, and where best to grow them.
- A free lecture is arranged each year, usually in March or April. In 2012 Gordon Lucas, Head Gardener of the Horniman’s Museum Gardens is giving an illustrated talk on ‘The Redevelopment of the Horniman’s Museum Gardens’. These are the finest public gardens in our area, but they are 100 years old and in need of substantial refurbishment. Gordon Lucas will explain the many new developments which are designed to realise the educational potential of the gardens as well as better serving a steadily increasing number of visitors. The talk will be given at the new Belair Recreation Centre, Gallery Road, on Thursday, April 19 2012; 7.45 for 8.00pm. Put the date in your diary to-day.
- On Tuesday, June 19 we are arranging a full day’s outing to the Savill Garden at the south eastern end of Windsor Great Park. This includes a tour of the gardens, a river cruise, lunch, tea and other transport. Tickets £45 from Ina Pulleine, 1 Perifield, London, SE21 8NG (Tel. 020 8670 5477 after 11.00am).
