Kilmington Village Show

Our marquee at the summer Village Show is always full of colourful flowers, vegetables and children’s exhibits, and the art and photography and home-made produce is displayed in the village hall – but not this year! However, our Autumn Show in the Village Hall on Saturday, 11th September will be just as colourful.

Don’t miss our annual Plant Market and coffee morning on Saturday, 7th May at the Village Hall, Kilmington, starting at 10.00am until 12 noon.

Bedding plants, herbaceous perennials, trees/shrubs, fruit and vegetable plants will be for sale. Please contribute any excess good quality plants – all will be gratefully received on the day and available for your Queen’s Jubilee celebration weekend garden displays.

There will also be a Plant identification table – bring along a picture or piece of plant you would like identified. In addition, there will be a Seed swap table – we may have the very seeds you still need! Entry is free!
It’s an opportunity to stay and chat over filter coffee/tea and enjoy a slice of cake!

On Friday, 13th May our talk will be by Marion Dale, who is a Gold medal winner at the Autumn Bath & West Flower Show and who has created a show garden for Chelsea.

The subject of her talk will be ‘Design your dream garden’. Marion will discuss the factors to consider when creating your dream garden – garden style, soil, landscaping, plant colour & texture. Whether starting from scratch, or creating a new interesting corner, her tips are sure to help.

Good Gardening

Kilmington has fertile soil, soft Devon climate, and a long tradition of good gardening.

Since its foundation more than 60 years ago, the village ‘Produce Association’ has spread its influence far beyond carrots and cabbages, offering talks and demonstrations by experts who understand the needs of the novice with a window box as well as the gardener with an acre or two.

We hold a plant market, open our gardens, arrange visits and host a summer flower show as part of the Village Fayre, and are ready to share our enthusiasm for plants and gardens with everyone, old or young, resident or visitor.

 

Kilmington Kids’ Corner

There are lots of ideas for growing your own vegetables and flowers.
