Opening and Plant Sales

The Botanic Garden is closed until further notice due to COVID-19 virus.

We had been looking forward to having our first All Day Spring Sale of 2020 however this year it will be delayed for a while. In May we have begun to garden again following guidelines in pairs. There are a lot of weeds! which we are slowing dealing with. We have been taking lots of photos however as the plants are looking great and some are flowering for the first time. Have a look at our May Album in the Gallery.

On Saturday 20th June, our Group have booked to have a stall at The Shires Plant Fair, Central Avenue, West Bridgford - we are hoping this will go ahead as planned and will post on here once we know more.

We will also post our opening date for 2020 on our News page which you can subscribe to so you'll receive a notification or like us on Facebook where we will also post.

On other Sundays (except one) from Spring to Autumn the garden is open to the public between 2pm and 4pm.  

Please note, the garden will not open on the Sunday of the day of the Robin Hood Half-Marathon which is 27th Sep in 2020.

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 2020 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.
