Annual Holiday

One of the opportunities available to Friends of the Garden is to participate in the Annual Holiday which generally takes place in early June. This has proved a popular event for a number of years and is organised by Mrs Janet Davies.

It is a great opportunity to join with like-minded garden lovers and visit gardens across the UK. In 2018 we visited gardens in Herefordshire including a guided tour of Hereford Cathedral. We also visited Birmingham University's Botanic Garden. Here you can view a personal recollection of this successful trip.

In previous years we have, for example, visited gardens in Norfolk, Warwickshire, Kent, Highgrove in Gloucestershire and Keukenhof in the Netherlands. The bus always seems to end up as a travelling greenhouse as we return home with our purchases on board!

Details of the 2019 holiday will be made available in our Members' Area in due course.
