Previous Event Reports

The SRGC runs events to promote rock gardening generally as an important part of its charitable aims.  It joins with other horticultural organisations in some of these events.  Many members and non-members help and attend these events which are an important part of the Club's charitable work in publicising rock gardening.  

However many members are not able to participate because they live to far away, but they like to be kept aware of what happens at these events.  We are pleased that members write reports.  We are particularly grateful to Sandy Leven, and also to Stan da Prato for these writeups.  Many members also post photographs on the SRGC Forum, often on the day or just afterwards.

David Boyd Events are financed by a generous legacy from David, who was a keen member of the Club.  The SRGC Council have decided that the money should be used to finance events to take place in areas not otherwise served by our regular Shows or other Events.  They are often run in conjunction with local gardening organisations with the aim of extending the outreach of the Club and bringing the appreciation of rock garden plants to gardeners who would not usually be able to attend Club activities.
