Roy Joins Eastgrove's 30th Birthday Party
Our 30th anniversary celebration on July 12th 2005 was as special as we hoped. Roy Lancaster was on sparkling form as he guided us all around the garden. The sun shone and shone as he enriched his enthusiastic enjoyment of his favourite plants with amusing anecdotes about their origins and habits. A wonderful day enjoyed by everyone.
Horticultural Society Partnership Garden
We are privileged to have been invited to become a Royal Horticultural Society Partnership Garden.
that throughout the season Royal
Horticultural Society members are entitled to free admission, and
we hope that they will bring their friends and family with them.
