SOME INFORMATION ABOUT OUR GROUP
The Scottish and Northern Borders Group is one of the many groups of the Hardy Plant Society. It is a group which covers the whole of Scotland and the parts of northern England near to the Scottish border. We organise day visits to gardens, have lecture days and also run some two day visits and a week's residential excursion in the UK or Europe. Our current year's programme appears on this website along with some details of future plans. We also publish a journal twice yearly entitled Northern Leaves which gives reports on previous garden visits and is free to members.
To become a member of our group one must first of all be a member of the national body. Through membership of the national body one receives a copy of the society's Journal and one can apply for seeds from the free seed distribution scheme. The society also produces a number of other publications on specific plants.
