Edderton and District Gardening Club
The Gardening Club will meet on Monday, November 5th, at 7.30pm, and our guest will be Sarah Speakman from Inverness, whose talk is entitled “Miniature Gardens: all of the pleasure, none of the pain”. Sarah won the Best Commercial Business Section of the 2017 Inverness College UHI Business Competition, with her idea for a business focusing on Miniature Gardens.
Sarah’s idea was to set up a miniature garden retail business – Suki Miniature Gardens – supplying miniature living plants, accessories, materials and expert advice. She wants to bring the joy and creativity of gardening to everyone, whether or not they have an outdoor space.
Sarah, who has worked as head gardener of Inverness Botanic Gardens for nearly 10 years, said: “The benefits of working with and among plants are increasingly being acknowledged as a major factor in improving health and wellbeing. It is also accessible and can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter what their income, age or physical mobility. Indoor gardens enable those in flats to nurture their very own garden even if they only have a window sill, whilst the benefits of outdoor miniature gardens are that they are easy to make, portable and bring a playful sense of fun.”

The Gardening Club meets in Edderton Community Centre on the first Monday of each month, from September through to May, (except January when we go out for a social meal instead). Members enjoy a 50% discount on seed orders from Suttons Seeds, and a smaller discount on their other garden products. Members can also receive discounts at our local Scotsburn Garden Centre in Tain and the Dornoch Garden Centre. A small raffle at each meeting helps to raise funds for gardening related charities, refreshments are provided and during the growing season there is usually a plant swap.
New members are always welcome.
