We are now able to go live with our own club website, It is still being developed as an ongoing project, but please have a look around, there are two versions, one for laptop and one for phones, both the same content but configured slightly different to suit the application.
We are now able to promote and market our club around the globe (The Isle and surrounding area is a good enough starting point though), not just to the members of our page as at present. This gives us the option of attracting more sponsors at extremely attractive rates when compared to weekly or monthly publication prices with the added bonus of 24/7 exposure.
Peter Walker of wackswickedplants.co.uk has been obsessed with unusual and carnivorous plants and has worked in Horticulture most of his life, training in the UK and the Netherlands. Along with his wife Helleentje they visit shows, and clubs spreading their extensive knowledge and passion.
Join us and be amazed at the colours and diversity of these gems of the plant world.

We thank SSE Keadby Windfarm for their continued support of our meetings!
For gardeners and the emphasis is on habitat, conditions required to grow carnivorous plants. Example is the ‘green fingers’ talk at the Eden Project.
The presentation that accompanies the talks has a lot of pictures, including some gruesome ones. Overall, the talk will explain where carnivorous plants grow, how they have developed, how to grow them yourself. It will attract insects.
We bring a good selection of plants, so people can see, touch, smell the actual plants.
The talk itself is approximately 45 minutes.
After this there is a question and answer session and opportunity to come and have a look at the plants.
RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood is a grassroots community gardening campaign helping people to make lasting improvements to their local environment.
The scheme is part of Britain in Bloom and supports supports community groups in cleaning up and greening up their immediate local environment – whether that’s the street they live in, or a small patch of communal land needing a revamp.
We welcome new members to the club and to our committee
All proceeds made by the club are used to enhance Eastoft Village.
We continue 2017 with a talk entitled Unnatural Gardening.
Much is now made of the need to garden naturally and to garden for wildlife. This talk briefly explores fashions in gardening and then looks at the concept of natural gardening and questions whether this current fashion is actually possible, sustainable or even desirable.
The talk has four main sections – native vs alien species, naturalistic planting, encouraging wildlife into the garden and organic gardening.
The conclusion reached might well be that all gardeners – even the most ‘ecologically sound’, definitely adopt unnatural practices!
This talk adopts a humorous approach but covers important underlying themes
