Programme of Garden Visits

There is always an interesting and full programme of garden visits.  Places are always limited and often fill up quickly. Visits are announced in the Newsletter and bookings are by post only. Details will be enclosed with the Newsletter. From 2012, due to the high demand for garden trips, only members will be able to apply in the first instance. Guests will be placed on a waiting list. After 6 weeks from the date of member application, guests will  be allocated any remaining places.
