Days out


Logo GentianOne of the benefits of being a Friend is the programme of coach trips to visit gardens and shows across the country.
The first Friends coach trip took place in September 1989 when spare places were offered for the University's Amateur Gardeners Holiday, including visits to Arley Hall, Bodnant and Ness Botanic Gardens.
We hope you will find trips that inspire you to come along!
