Why your membership matters

Established in 1962 to support the work of staff and volunteers, over the years the Friends have supported many significant projects in the Gardens with over £2.1 million worth of funding.

80p out of every £1 membership goes directly to support the running and maintenance of the Gardens.

20p out of every £1 membership contributes towards grants for specific projects. 

In 2012-2013, these have included funding the Making Waves garden, the awarding winning Taste of Ness show garden at RHS Tatton Flower Show, funding the Wilderness project, improvements to the terraces/pinewoods and student bursaries

Past projects supported by the Friends include the Wildflower Meadows, the award winning Ness Botanische garden and installation of the Pingo waterfall.
