Who are the Friends?

Who are the friends?

The Friends are a group of people who share a special interest in the Garden and who wish to retain its excellence both as a centre of education and research and as a place of relaxation and enjoyment.

The Friends are able to benefit from the resources that the Garden has to offer such as the library, annual seed list, coffee mornings and a Newsletter.

They support the Garden in many ways including helping to raise money for special projects at the garden.
