Meetings are held twice a year. In the past they have been day meetings, held in the Conference Room of the Royal Botanic Garden, Inverleith Row, Edinburgh EH3 5LP, but we are exploring the possibility of having garden visits, and of having meetings elsewhere. Guests are very welcome. The RBGE is entered by the main reception on Inverleith Row. Lothian Buses 23 and 7 stop nearby and there is on-street parking around the garden.
The Garden has an extensive collection of Himalayan plants including Meconopsis and the lunch time break provides an excellent opportunity for a brief introduction to these collections. See the RBGE website for more information.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided at 10 am and again at lunch time, but please bring your own lunch. Meetings usually finish by 3.30 pm. There is a small charge for admission which also covers the cost of refreshments. A selection of plants is available on a 50:50 basis. This helps support the Group and provides members with the opportunity to own plants, not readily available from commercial outlets.
