Opening and Plant Sales

Our Botanic Garden is open to the general public on all Sunday afternoons 2pm-4pm until October. On Oct 3rd it will be open from 10am-4pm for the last time in 2021

If you follow our Facebook Page we'll also post there.

Why not look in our photo album Plants For Sale A-Z Photo Album before you come, so you can see the colours of flowers for example. We often have over 100 different plants for sale and some are not found for sale very often. If you 'Join' the album, you will receive notifications when we add new plants.

Payment is preferred by cash (with plants collected from the Botanic Garden by arrangement or Sunday afternoons 2-4pm,) however if you are one of our members, you can also pay by Bank Transfer. All plants are priced £2, £3, £4 or £5 each

In May 2020, we began to garden again following guidelines in pairs. There were a lot of weeds which we have now dealt 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 recent photo Albums on the Gallery Page.

Look on our Gallery page to see lots more photos from 2021 and right back to 2012

We will post our opening dates on our News page or you could 'like' us on Facebook where we will also post.

On 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.

Plants grown in the garden and donated by members are for sale from as little as £2 and are very popular with our visitors. The proceeds go towards maintaining the garden and supporting the Winter Programme of talks.

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 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.

Plants read

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

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.
