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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Following a short career in classical music as a gifted tenor, Graham was inspired to change profession as a result of a cathartic trip to Sissinghurst Castle in Kent where his eyes were opened to the creative process of gardening at its highest level.
In 1998, he established his own nursery, Marchants Hardy Plants, at Laughton in Sussex.
As a hands-on man and with the help of his staff, he loves to raise and select new varieties, and enjoys playing and painting with plants.
Graham’s life as a nurseryman is further enriched by garden design, consultations, photography, talks, writing and travel to observe plants in their native habitats in countries such as Armenia, China, South Africa and Turkey. In spite of all this, he still finds time to warble the odd note.
Join us on Tuesday 10th March at 7.30pm at The Alverton, Tregolls Road, Truro.
Graham Gough will join us on Wednesday 11th March at 2.30pm at the Penventon Park Hotel, West End, Redruth where he will share his lecture, ‘A Miscellany of Plants‘.
