It is still a great time to visit the Garden many herbaceous plants are still in flower against a background of autumn colours.
VBG has sent an invitation to the Friends and all their Passholders and Volunteers to take advantage of a great offer:
Half-price tea or coffee and cake
in the Plantation Room from
Friday 26th to Sunday 28th January
Why not treat yourself and a friend or bring someone who has not visited the Garden for a long time?
The new chef now makes all the cakes and scones in-house and they are displayed in a new covered cabinet on the counter.
If you have forgotten to renew your membership of the Friends’ Society for 2018 you can pick up a leaflet, fill in the form and leave your subscription payment for the membership secretary after your visit.
Please remember that the money raised by the Friends’ goes to buy plants, landscaping and education (particularly, funding apprentices). Perhaps you could persuade your visitor to join the Friends’ as well.
