Gardening Group


About the group

The Redbourne Village Gardening Group meet on a Monday from 10 o’clock till about one. We are a friendly bunch and are always looking for new members, everyone welcome! All you need is a love of gardening, a pair of gardening gloves and a trowel and a desire to keep our Village beautiful. Come along and join us.

The hard work, dedication and pride of the Redbourne Village Gardening Group is clear. Throughout the village there are attractive planters, herbaceous beds and borders which are maintained by the Gardening Group. During the summer months some of our villagers also help by watering the planters. If you can help please contact the clerk or any member of the Parish Council.

Judges comments below:
A most attractive village, where local residents clearly care about their environment and community planting is a real strength.
Excellent planting can be found on the corner of Beck Lane and High Street with very attractive flower beds and a most impressive bed of well selected grasses.
Along Beck Lane there was colourful planting on the pillars along the Beck and across the bridge Further good planting was found at School Lane, the junction of Carr Lane and St Andrew’s Close, Park Lane and by the village sign on High Street
There was planting beneath the street signs in several locations around the village.
There are many lovely gardens in the village with some good planting and colourful floral displays in the front gardens of many properties.
Good examples were found at Boxmoor House Empringham Cottage, Ford Cottage and Springfield Beck Lane; Stonecroft Vicarage Lane; 2, 7 and 9 Old School Yard; 7 Carr Lane and 3 High Street.
Special mention must be made of the tremendous floral display at number 2 Pond Cottage and the great efforts made by residents on St Andrew Close especially numbers 1, 2, 4 and 1 3.
The Red Lion also provided good floral displays with hanging baskets and colourfully planted baskets on the wall of the car park.
