Garden Visiting

Group leader; Chris Benn.

The Garden Visiting Group usually meets once a month, often on a Sunday.  We enjoy visiting a variety of gardens and do return to old favourites from time to time.  The only requirement from participants is that they enjoy looking at gardens!.  If they are interested in identifying any particular plant, another member may know or we can consult an app! We try to ensure that refreshments and toilets are available and we will highlight any possible hazards, if known.  However, as most of the gardens we visit are private, it isn’t feasible to do a ‘dry run’ first. Sensible clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather are advised.  Where possible, car sharing is encouraged in part to reduce our carbon footprint but especially to enable members, who don’t drive, the opportunity to visit the gardens. There is NO expectation that members attend every visit.’
