Opening and Plant Sales

We plan 4 all day Plant Sales in 2017, from 10am-4pm on:

30th April 2017
11th June 2017
27th August 2017
1st October 2017

On other Sundays (except one) from Spring to Autumn the garden is open to the public between 2pm and 4pm.  In 2017, the first Sunday is 30th April (the sale day) and the last Sunday is 1st October. Please note, the garden will not open on Sunday 24th September, the day of the Robin Hood Half-Marathon.

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 email or see Sandra at a meeting. 

Sunday 2017 rota

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.
