Local Group

Prunus 'Matsumae Hanakagoto'


With almost 100 members, the Shropshire Group brings together enthusiastic gardeners from across the county. The group also hosts an impressive range of National Collections - some 20 genera.   Our programme runs from September to May, with meetings held in Shrewsbury. The group also puts on a stand at the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show.



Our group's activities centre around monthly talks on a range of topics, given by experts in their field. 

Talks are usually held on the  2nd Thursday at the month, currently at the Guildhall University Centre, Shrewsbury, until at least May 2020.   

From time to time we run practical workshops and everyone is welcome to help with our plant sale in May, for which we propagate all our own plants. 

Members also enjoy helping at our stand at the Shrewsbury Flower Show, creating the display or stewarding during the show itself. 

We are always pleased to see new people at our meetings:  there is a charge of £3 for a visitor, members free.
