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 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. BAGS' members are entitled to discounts at local nurseries Simpsons and Scotsdales and also at Hedgehog Plants and Gardens at Risby Barns.
