Visitors are welcome and asked to donate £4 at the door. Visits to National Collections and notable gardens are organised throughout the year.

Plea for Plants ... and Search for Seeds: We always encourage members to propagate plants for sale at our Plant Fairs, we have a propagation group, we provide practical help to National Collection Holders in Surrey and we take an active part in the Plant Exchange Scheme and Plant Guardian scheme.
