Plants grown in the garden and donated by members are for sale from as little as £1.50 and are very popular with our visitors. The proceeds go towards maintaining the garden and supporting the Winter Programme of talks.

Plants read

Although we will not be in our Sunday best, you may also call in when we are open for our Friday morning working parties. Whenever you pay a visit, you will be most welcome. The Botanic Garden is a place where we learn from each other, so do talk to us. 

Volunteers Rota

Members volunteer on a rota basis to open the garden give advice and sell plants. To volunteer, contact us by checking the Sunday Rota for 2019 and send us an email to or see Sandra at a meeting. 

Don't worry if you haven't done this before, we will pair you up with someone who has, and it's good fun.

The Bothy, where we pot up plants, store our gardening tools 
and make our drinks when we are in the garden.
