The Welwyn Garden City Society
Welwyn Garden City Horticultural Society
The Society is a friendly, welcoming club for all gardeners: young; old; expert and beginner. We aim to promote and encourage the skill, knowledge and art of gardening through a wide range of activities, mainly consisting of speaker meetings and garden visits.
We also try to provide help, information and advice to members through our newsletters, website and contact between members.
Meetings are held monthly between September and May. In the spring and summer, visits to gardens and nurseries are arranged for members.
