Following our AGM, which was held on Monday March 4th, we can confirm a full programme of events for 2013:
Although we have 29 places booked on this tour there is still some room available. The tour departs from Kew Green on May 30th and will visit several Cornish gardens which are not usually open to the public. It will also include a visit to The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
The tour will be staying in a hotel in Lostwithiel and the price includes dinner, bed and breakfast and entry costs to most of the gardens.
The cost is £475 per head for those sharing a room but single rooms are available at an additional cost. As there has been a surge of single bookings any further singles will be at a greater cost than the original figure of £80 quoted previously.

The gardens of Hinton Ampner were laid out by Ralph Dutton and are widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of 20th-century design, mixing formal and informal planting, providing all year round interest.
There will be a guided tour of the gardens at Hinton Ampner in Hampshire on Tuesday July 2nd. The cost will probably be £15 for National Trust members and £23 for non-members.

The KHS Annual (69th) Summer Show will be held on Kew Green on Saturday 24th August 2013.
Internationally acclaimed gardens of drought, water and woodland situations, The Beth Chatto Gardens began in 1960. From an overgrown wasteland with poor gravel soil and boggy hollows it has been transformed into an informal garden harmonising with the surrounding countryside.
A booking has been made for a KHS visit to the Beth Chatto Garden on Tuesday September 3rd. The cost of the trip is likely to be £25 per person including the cost of the bus and entry to the garden.
