Spring has arrived in Groombridge

A visit to Penjerrick Gardens near Falmouth, Cornwall

Visited last week this amazing informal 15 acre valley garden. A wander through a subtropical jungle, past camellias, rhododendrons, magnolias, large clumps of towering bamboos, giant gunnera and lots of tree ferns.

If you are in the area it is well worth a visit.

A few of the committee went to see the daffodils at Stonewall Park, NGS open afternoon at Chiddingstone Hoath.

The garden is open again May 2nd. This will be a worthwhile visit as the bluebells will be out in abundance.

Without events to organise, a few of the committee have been keeping busy by walking the Tunbridge Wells Circular.
