When: Fortnightly on Tuesday afternoons 2:00
From April through to September

We meet to enjoy local gardens, most of which are privately owned and not routinely open to the public. The visits are arranged by the Garden Group Convenor or by other members of the group.

Most are within a 25 mile radius of Bristol, but some will be further afield. Brief details of visits appear in newsletters but fuller details are given to group members by email. Members use their own cars.

There is a charge made by the garden owners, but this is nearly always donated to a charity of the owner’s choice. Usually the owner is available to chat about the garden, and give advice about plants.

The afternoon always finishes with a cup of tea and generally a home-made cake.

If you wish to visit any of the gardens, please email or telephone the Gardens Group Convenor by the preceding Saturday evening at the latest.

Please make sure that he has your contact details and he would also like to hear from you if you can organise a garden visit for the programme.

Dogs are not permitted, except for guide/support dogs.

Access varies according to the host garden. Garden owners are generally very helpful about parking and allowing members to use the toilet.
