Opening and Plant Sales

Our Botanic Garden opens to the general public on Sunday afternoons 2pm-4pm until October (except 24th July, (Splendour Festival) and 25th Sept (Marathon).

We are planning an All Day Sale on 28th August

If you follow our Facebook or Instagram Pages we'll also post there.

Although we will not be in our Sunday best, you may also call in when we are open for our Wednesday, Thursday or 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. Do come in if you find the gate open.

Why not look in our photo album Plants For Sale A-Z Photo Album before you come. You can see the colours of flowers of plants which flower at a different time of year. 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.
Plants listed in stock correct as of June 2022 for plant sales. There are some rarely offered plants for sale as we did a lot of dividing in Autumn 2021. Plants from £2 to £6 with a few 'specials'

Here are are few short video clips from 2020

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, £5 or £6 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

You could 'like' us on Facebook or Instagram where we will also post.

On Sundays (except one or two) 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 Splendour Festival or 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.
