BGHG Programme of Events 2020
Our programme for 2020 is obviously affected by the restrictions imposed on all our lives by the coronavirus.
The BGHG Committee has now cancelled all scheduled activities until mid-September and is keeping those for late-September to November under review. Further information will be posted here whenever decisions are reached.
This year our programme opened in February with our first garden visit of the year to Wakehurst Place in West Sussex, and will be followed by our Annual Study Day on Saturday 29 February and the BGHG Annual General Meeting on 12 March.
2020 Dates are:
Visit: Wakehurst Place & the Millennium Seedbank: Thursday, 13 February
Annual Study Day: A GALAXY OF GROTTOES Saturday 29 February OPEN to ALL
Our Study Day this year will be looking at the ever-intriguing subject of grottoes in garden history from classical times through the Italian Renaissance to their heyday in Britain in the 18th century, and will include a talk on the problems and practicalities of their restoration.
