Bangalow Garden Club meets once a month from February to December.
Our region is sub-tropical … we are able to grow plants from temperate to tropical and success is determined by the dryness or wetness of the season
So it’s aglorious place to grow a garden from a bare paddock to luscious growth in just five years.
The area was heavily logged for its beautiful rainforest timbers in the late 19th century, especially the famed Australian softwood, red cedar.
There is quite a penchant for re-afforestation in the area especially where acreage is available, but beautiful native rainforest shrubs and trees are noted in almost most gardens even where traditional cottage garden style is used.
We have a very large membership with in excess of eighty members per meeting. This entails quite a lot of organisation especially to provide for our delectable and famed afternoon teas.
