Open to all members of the society, the Rock Garden Group has a more in depth focus towards flowering plants ranging from alpine, small herbaceous, bulbs to small shrubs. The meetings can take the form of specialist presentations, garden visits, travelogues and occasional hands on activities. For members wishing to develop even greater knowledge and skills, they can become involved in maintaining the society’s rock gardens and the propagation of plants. Please refer to the syllabus for meeting sessions and special events.
