George Hargreaves, our speaker for Monday 27th has unfortunately lost his voice, which might be a teeny weeny problem for his one hour zoom talk. So we’ll keep you informed if it needs to be postponed. Please keep an eye on the website closer to the time. Many thanks

BBC Radio Interview

Tender Shoots were interviewed by the BBC Radio Shropshire gardening program on Sunday 12th March. If you’d like to listen to the interview click the link below. We’re on the last half hour so just forward through 3 hours 21 mins.

We hold gardening talks over the Autumn Winter months via Zoom. Individuals and clubs are very welcome to join in, it’s open to anyone, there’s no charge to attend, see ‘Programme’ page for zoom link & further information.

We also have a monthly networking zoom meeting for any club to join in with where clubs from across the country will get together to help and support one another.

You don’t have to be affiliated, it’s open to every club.
