Meconopsis 'Mrs Jebb'

Welcome to our Group page.  If you are interested in rare plants and their conservation in Dumfries and Galloway (as well as nationally) this is the Group for you.  Read on for more information.

  • If you want to find out about the 650 National Plant Collections throughout the UK, we can help.

  • If you are keen to visit gardens not normally open to the public, both in this area and throughout the UK, we can help.

  • Our Group can help you propagate and grow rare and endangered species.

  • If you want to meet with other gardeners and have fun doing all these things, we would like to hear from you - see our contact details below.
