Membership covers our affiliation to the Royal Horticultural Society and the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners (NSALG) (£3 per member) which includes a quarterly magazine, free legal advice, a substantial discount on the annual seed order from Kings Seeds which benefits BAGS as well as you by supplying high quality, good value seeds.
