Welcome to The Donheads Gardening Club Website.

We are a friendly club with members from the Donheads, Shaftesbury and surrounding villages. Our members have a varying range of gardening knowledge but all share a common interest and enjoyment in gardens and gardening.

We meet monthly in the Donhead St Mary village hall on the second Monday of the month (except August), unless a garden visit has been arranged elsewhere. Doors open at 7.00pm with time to chat and have refreshments before the meeting starts at 7.30pm. The talks and demonstrations are generally headed by a guest speaker and cover a wide range of garden related topics. We also arrange private visits to gardens of interest, and our club membership entitles us to discounts at some local Garden Centres. Non-members are always welcome to our meetings for a guest fee of £5.00.

Our current calendar of events may be subject to change due to any Covid restrictions.

The Donheads Gardening Club is affiliated to:

The RHS (Royal Horticultural Society), The Gardens Group Sherborne and the Wiltshire Gardens Trust.

We always welcome new members, please see our membership page for details.
