We are interested in promoting the growing, propagation and conservation of alpine, rock garden and woodland plants, small hardy herbaceous plants, hardy and half-hardy bulbs, hardy ferns and small shrubs.
Anyone can grow these diminutive beauties and with the trend towards smaller plots they are ideal for the modern garden - they can even be grown in a window box.
Coronavirus Update 16-09-2020
Given the ongoing restrictions on meetings, we have replaced our lecture programme for the rest of the year with online Zoom lectures. The lectures will be:
- Crevice Gardens and Their Plants - by John Good - on Thursday September 17th at 8pm.
- Woodland Gardens - by Ken Cox - on Thursday October 15th at 8pm. This is as shown in the programme, but will now be online.
- Primulaceae in Pots - by Jim Almond - on Thursday November 5th at 8pm. This date is in the programme, but with a new lecturer, and online of course.
To our great regret, we've also had to cancel the Alpine Weekend in November.
And (is there no end to the bad news?) now we've had to cancel the Plant Sale we had planned for the 19th September in my garden. But it will still go ahead online.
We've added a Virtual Show page to the website, so you can post pictures of your plants for all to share. Go to the Shows menu, then choose Virtual, take a look at the photos there, then add your own.
We will provide updates here and on our Facebook page.
Erythronium 'Pagoda' , believed to be a hybrid of E. tuolumnense and E. 'White Beauty', this has a well-deserved RHS Award of Garden Merit. I love the pink tips to the petals.Jamie Chambers.
