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 22-04-2022

The pandemic situation is improving, so our Annual Show is going ahead on April 30th, but the next couple of lectures will still be given via Zoom. We will return to live lectures on October 13th, when Ger van den Beuken is coming over from The Netherlands to talk to us on Cushion Plants. Planning is advancing for the Alpine Weekend, but please note the correction to the Newsletter and Fixtures card sent out at the start of January: the 2022 Alpine Weekend Programme will take place from November 25th to November 27th.

We will provide updates here and on our Facebook page.
