The Garden Club of Bermuda was started in 1921 to stimulate interest in horticulture, floral design and related subjects, and to aid in the conservation of natural resources of the Island. To this end its members work hard to raise money for horticultural and environmental scholarships, and to support the local environmental community, whilst having fun along the way!

Eight general meetings are held annually (October to May) during which the business of the Club is transacted and members compete for points in various categories - flowers, fruit and vegetables, flower arranging and plant exchange. A guest speaker is invited.

Major fundraisers such as the Open Houses and Gardens programme are organised when possible, and the Club annually provides financial assistance to a number of Bermudians who wish to study overseas in the fields of horticulture, landscape architecture, environmental studies and related subjects through their scholarship programme.

Many members are accomplished floral designers whose work is often seen in our churches, Open Houses programme and other public places. Some compete and judge in overseas events. Please refer to this website for details. Members participate regularly in the annual Agricultural Exhibition as exhibitors, stewards, judges and judges' assistants. The Club was a founding member of Keep Bermuda Beautiful, and supports the work of the Bermuda National Trust and other projects throughout the islands.

Please browse through our website; we are a very busy Club and have many activities for those interested in any aspects of gardening and floriculture. We welcome new members, and are always looking for volunteers to help with our many fun projects. Above all members will attest to the camaraderie and friendships forged as a result of becoming involved in this special organisation. And if you are looking for floral art inspiration, this is the place. Please enjoy the many wonderful floral displays in our website created by our very talented members.

After tea we were given a wonderful talk about Gota work, which is the intricate sewing of gold, silver, copper, and rose gold threads in various forms on clothing. There were two models who were in unique beautiful sarees with two forms of this beautiful handmade work. One of the dresses took one month to complete, 20 ladies working on it!!!

Later this afternoon we had high tea at the Faluknama Palace, which is one of the 35 palaces in the area still privately owned, and now a very high end hotel. It is perched very high on a peak and upside the Old City, with incredible views in all directions. Guests are bright from the gate to the hotel in horse drawn carriages, and then rose petals are tossed over the upper balcony to the stairs below, as you make your way up to register.

Today, Tuesday in Hyderabad, was another long hot one. We were taken by bus down into the Old City area to visit Charminar, which is considered the Centre of the city. It is under restoration at the moment, with one of the four minarets completed. We had a considerable walk through some tight streets of vendors selling everything from limes to bangles, to men’s wedding jackets, to shoes, very glitzy outfits and the list goes on. This is a more Islamic part of the city, so we were more modestly dressed, and limited on our use of cameras.

A long but wonderful day today at a craft village preceded by a traditional lunch on a banana leaf “plate” in a local banquet hall. A little retail therapy was good.
