SGT garden visits are coming back!

Dear SGT members

During lockdown our Events Committee have been busy organising a programme of garden visits, especially for our members. You have waited long enough…

Key points

  • These talks/visits are for SGT members only. Non-members, including guests of existing members, will have to join before making a booking - to join, see this page Join SGT
  • We will be using Bookwhen to make bookings. Details of how to use this will be sent direct to SGT members soon, but don’t worry if you aren’t confident to use it – just contact us 
  • Tickets will be booked on a first come, first served basis and a waiting list will be managed if any event is over-subscribed

Events – the latest situation

  • Wednesday 21 July- 2.00 – 4.30 pm visit to Wadhurst Park (currently limited to 30 and fully booked but more tickets may be available if Covid retrictions allow. Cost per ticket is £12 incl Tea and cake)
  • Thursday 12 August – morning visit to Michelham Priory Gardens, BN27 3QS

    For those of you who saw James Neal’s wonderful virtual tour in May, here is your chance to meet him in person. As Head Gardener he will show us around the 7-acre gardens with their charming mixture of historic detail and contemporary features. Tickets will cost £15.00 and will include tea/coffee on arrival plus the guided tour. Bookings will open on Bookwhen from 8am Monday 21 June. Currently the maximum number is 30 – more places may become available if Covid restrictions allow.

Still in the pipeline – not yet confirmed

  • Tues 14th September – afternoon/early evening visit to Denmans at Fontwell BN18 0SU. Starting from 1.30pm, the visit will include tea/coffee on arrival, a talk about the work at the garden by Gwendolyn van Paasschen, the current owner and a guided tour of the garden. This will be followed by wine and nibbles/finger buffet when you will have time to chat to people you may not have seen in some time and also get to know people you didn’t know before. We are aiming to end the garden visits with a bit of a party!

    Details are currently being firmed up and as soon as we have an agreed price we will let you know and open bookings via Bookwhen.

All Covid-related precautions will be taken and maps/garden details will be sent in advance to all those who have booked.
