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 21-08-2021

We have one more Zoom lecture before the planned restarting of our live lectures on October 14th, but please keep an eye on this website for updates. We will be requiring that members have been fully vaccinated if they attend.

Please note that the original Alpine Weekend Programme we sent to members had the wrong dates. The Weekend will take place from November 19th to November 21st.

We will provide updates here and on our Facebook page.
