Garden Visits and Talks

Occasionally, a visit to a garden or a nursery, or a talk from an acknowledged horticultural expert is organized on behalf of all four groups. These visits and talks are often thrown open to all members of our U3A as they can be of interest to everyone, not just those interested in gardening and horticulture. These combined meetings can involve additional costs for speaker, transport, venue hire, or admission fees that are not covered by the annual subscription.


Recent visits have been to:

HRH Price Charles Highgrove Estate

Bluebell Nursery & Arboretum


Our most recent talk was given by:

Vicky Fox of Plantagogo, holder of the Plant Heritage National Collection of Heuchera, Heucherella and Tiarella.
