History

The St. Margaret's Bay Gardening Club has developed and maintains a perennial garden at the St. Margarets Bay Shopping Village at the junction of Highway No. 3 and Sonnys Road. First established in 1997, the garden has grown and matured under the faithful care of SMBGC members.

Currently, the SMBGC is initiating an educational component to the garden. Plants will be labelled on site and a photographic record presented on the club's website for use by anyone wishing to identify the flowers and shrubs.

A detailed history has been created. Members are welcome to contact any member of the executive to provide additional information about the garden and its development.

Site Plan

A diagram of the garden is divided into 7 sections. Each section contains photographs of many of the plants located in their approximate positions.

To find a plant you are interested in, click on the photo image which will enlarge automatically. If you wish to learn more about it, click the ? symbol which will link you to a gardening website containing information such as size, colour, growing conditions, etc. The absence of a ? symbol means we have not been able to find a suitable website for linking.
