About Us

Our basic annual programme of activities includes a plant sale, a summer flower and produce show, at least one talk by a gardening professional, and an annual trip to gardens of interest.

Membership covers our affiliation to 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.
