We love plants! We like looking at them, growing them and talking about them.
Summer’s almost over
But there are still lots of late-flowering plants to enjoy and then autumn, the season of mellow fruitfulness, to look forward to.

We love plants and they are the focus of all our activities. Members have a very wide range of interest from well-known plants to the rare and exotic, particular genera or plants for specific conditions. We also can’t resist propagating our plants so members can often swap or buy many plants that are difficult to find elsewhere.
Gardening is usually something of a solitary occupation so belonging to a society like ours gives us the opportunity to meet other like-minded people to share our love of plants. Some of us are experts, some are beginners and most of us are somewhere in between but we are all keen to learn more and to share the knowledge we gather.
We arrange events throughout the year. From September to April we have monthly meetings with a talk, plant display, plant, sundries and book sales and seed swap. In all but the depths of winter we organize visits to gardens large and small. We also have our own plant fair and area groups often arrange other informal events.
