Share your love of the Garden this Christmas

We have some novel ideas for Christmas presents this year!
Gift membership of the Friends makes a wonderful and original present for Christmas, introducing friends and family to the joys of the Garden while supporting us in our work. Please make sure we have your gift membership applications (click on the link to the left to download the application form) by 5 December to allow time for processing.

We are also thrilled that this year you can buy one of our What's On courses on-line as a gift - the perfect way to buy some high-quality leisure time for a loved one! Some choices, such as a gift place on the Learn to Garden weekend next spring, may have a tinge of self-interest about it, but with a huge range of plant identification and science, basketry and crafts, garden history and botanical illustration courses, there is sure to be a special day for a special person. Explore the recently-published What's On programme via the link to the left and click through to the on-line shop. As you go through the steps processing your choice of course, there will be an option to indicate that the course is a gift for someone else.

If you want to just buy a taster of the Garden as a gift, it is also possible to buy advance admission tickets at the ticket offices which, together with a Botanic Garden Guide Book, would make a fabulous introduction to the Garden perhaps to put under the tree as a little something extra, drop off with the family next door or post to friends?

Thank you for your continuing support and we wish you happy holidays this Christmas and New Year.
