Alpine Garden Society Bedford branch

We are a small group of keen and friendly gardeners who are interested in alpine plants (plants that grow in mountains). We don't have mountains in our gardens so we grow our plants in pots & troughs, on rockeries and in pretty much normal gardens. Some members have an alpine house.

Our speakers often give illustrated talks on plants in their natural habitats to save us the expense of travelling there ourselves! Tonight the National AGS President, Chris Bailes, will give an illustrated talk about 'The Gondwana Garden - plate tectonics and plant distribution in the Southern Hemisphere'. This promises to be a fascinating talk, explaining the reasons for the varying flora.

Each meeting has displays of plants and flowers or artistic entries (photography, embroidery etc) and a free library for members. Raffle with plant prizes. Refreshments at the end of the meeting. Lots of friendly advice available.
