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 01-02-2021

We have hopes that before too long we will get back to normal, so our lecture programme for the first half of the year will be online. From September we are hoping to return to normal lectures. But it looks like online lectures will continue to play a part in the future.

Note that we have scheduled two more online lectures - Jon Evans in April and Jimi Blake in May.

We will provide updates here and on our Facebook page.
