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.

Urgent Trip Information

  1. For trips, if you have not received a slip in lieu of a ticket two weeks before the trip, please contact the organisers to confirm you are on the trip. We have had one or two trips where people have turned up who have not been on the list.
  2. Please make sure that for overnight trips, you enclose at least an A5 stamped addressed envelope for all the information that needs to be sent to you.


The time of leaving Nailsea has changed to 08:30 a.m. not 09:00 a.m. This is because it is difficult to park in the Clevedon Road car park after 08:30 a.m.



There has lately been some confusion on the cancellation procedures of trips that members have already booked. Please note it will be assumed that unless previous notification is given to a trip organiser that you will be ready to board the coach at the given time. Prior notification will enable your place to be offered to someone on the waiting list and if this is taken up then it is more than likely you will receive your money back. If there are no people on the waiting list then any reimbursement will be assessed at the end of the trip when all costs have been covered.

If you are not present to board the coach at the given time, due to time constraints, we will leave without you and no refund will be made.  If for some unforeseen circumstance you are unable to make the trip at the last moment please endeavour to contact the organiser/s on their mobile phone so they are not waiting for you to turn up so that the trip can leave on time and not inconvenience members who are ready to go.









Coach leaves Clevedon road car park, Nailsea at 8.30am, returns about 5.30-6.00pm
