Before Covid there were regular trips organised ont he forum - to Kew, Chelsea Physic Garden, Wisley, notable gardens. I'd love to see them start again. Any thoughts? 🌱

    I'm happy to meet folk visiting The Old Vicarage at East Ruston, or Bressingham Gardens ... I can't speak for @WonkyWomble but I've a feeling she'd be up for that too.  B)

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    I'd be happy for both.

    I'd be happy for both too. I arrive in Norfolk on the 17th August, but we are away at a friend's birthday party on the 20th.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    All the good gardens are a fair distance from me but if there was a meet up in the Borders or Cumbria then I would be up for it.

    Anywhere with easy railway links would work well for me :)

    Think bus journeys are still a bit tough in this weather.... on those buses with no AC...

    I’d be up for anywhere in London or the South East.  Not sure I could do Norfolk there and back in a day 🤔

    I might be up for Harlow Carr, or anywhere else in the Yorks / North Lincs / North Notts / North Derbyshire areas, depending on the day. I'll probably be popping in to Bridgewater for a couple of hours on Thursday afternoon on my way to Wales (it's ideal for a halfway stop, beats motorway services for a tea, loo and leg stretch).
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
