Entries are welcome from any gardener, cake baker, photographer (the photography competition is always a popular event) and there are a wide range of classes to enter and even classes for children.

  • visiting gardens in Topsham, chatting to the owners.

  • our annual Gardeners’ Question Time gives us all the opportunity to have some of our queries and problems solved and a cuppa and a natter afterwards, of course.

  • Saturday and Sunday mornings when you are welcome to bring your morning coffee to the Trading Hut, to meet some of the other members and have a browse through some gardening magazines.
