Meetings

The Society’s next meeting of 2024 will be back at our usual venue (Eden Gardens) on Friday 02 August 2024.

The Society’s General Meetings are usually held in the evening of the first Friday of each month excluding January.

Meetings are well attended and draw a range of experienced growers through to those just starting out. Members of other clubs and societies and other visitors are welcome to attend these meetings.

A guest speaker at each meeting presents a topic as diverse as care and cultivation of specific genera, seed propagation and plants in habitat. Updates on the guest speaker will be posted closer to the event via the Society’s Facebook page or the news tab on this site.

There are also opportunities for members to bring along plants for discussion, tips and advice.

For members there is a very well stocked library available, auctions of rare and unusual plants and lucky door prizes.
