As a volunteer in the garden it's very pleasing to see the results - a tray of plants from cuttings taken last autumn. Well, apart from the yellow leaved one bottom right!

Friends on line

As Friends will read in their Newsletter, we have set up a web site on Group Spaces to enable the committee to contact by email those Friends who join the group  If you would like to take part please follow the link on the panel to the right.
We hope that we can use the system to cut down on our very expensive postal charges Equally important is being able to notify the Friends of events in the Garden and to consult on the ways the Friends choose to contribute towards the development of the Garden. 

Also on the right is the link to MyDonate, which is the on-line method of renewing membership fees. It's very easy to use and you don't have to register if you don't wish to do so!   More information about  MyDonate is on a separate page.
