Affiliate membership is available to garden clubs and societies in Cornwall and offers two membership cards which can be used by members of the club or society to attend CGS events and also to obtain discounts available to CGS members. The Secretary of the club or society receives the usual regular membership mailings and a copy of the annual Journal. The CGS offers Gold and Silver Certificates for the club to award at its own local show. The annual Affiliates meeting offers an opportunity for representatives to network and share information with other clubs. We also circulate a list of speakers and judges. Affiliated societies can advertise their own events on the CGS website.
Our Cornwall Garden Society specialist speaker list is exclusively available to our Cornwall Garden Society Members. This list can be downloaded by clicking here. You’ll will be asked for a password which can be obtained by contacting Alison Avard who can be e-mailed by at email@example.com
Our members have some truly beautiful and interesting gardens. Take a look to see some of the wonderful things growing.
You can take out CGS membership as an individual or as a family and there are lots of benefits.
This month’s lectures come from Derry Watkins as she brings us an insightful talk about unusual and Long-blooming Garden Plants
Join us at The Alverton, Tregolls Road, Truro at 7:30pm
Derry Watkins started Special Plants Nursery 30 years ago. In 1993, she won a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to spend three months in South Africa hunting for new plants to introduce into horticulture. In 1995 she returned, seed collecting in the Drakensberg. Since then, she has collected plants in many parts of the world and is renowned for many new plant introductions.
In 1996, Derry and her husband bought a derelict barn to convert into a house, and during the last 20 years, they have converted the fields into an amazing garden, which has featured in major horticultural journals and on television.
Derry also teaches at The English Gardening School and is the author of two books: The Complete Greenhouse Book and Sunspaces.
