We are a community group with a keen interest in plants and gardens. In the winter we meet at the The Dusthole (Kings Arms, Garston Street) in Shepton Mallet where we have speakers, hands-on workshops or demonstrations. In the summer we visit gardens, nurseries and have a stand at the Collett Park Day.
