Local Group

Cotinus 'Candy Floss'


The very active Somerset Group has a wide ranging programme, including talks visits to gardens and National Collections, plant sales, propagation and sharing of plants/seeds. We have a members' Plant Sale one hour before each talk.

All indoor meetings are held at Edington Village Hall unless otherwise indicated. Admission free for members, £4 visitors except where stated otherwise.

See the Somerset Group website for details of events. We arrange a short break holidays visiting gardens in Britain and sometimes abroad.

We take part in the Annual Free Plant Exchange.

Our aim is to increase the number of National Collections and to give them all the support we can.

Visitors are most welcome to come to any of our functions, also to become members and help us in our work.
