About Us

For those interested in alpine plants in the wild or in cultivation. A gathering of people with a desire to share on insights and information.

Our regular meetings often include speakers on plants, expeditions or practical. We also arrange garden visits. Four groups combine for the Kent Spring & Autumn Shows.
Shows are open to National members.


Annual membership is £7.00 per person with a £2.00 supplement for those not members of the National Alpine Garden Society.


Indoor lecture and demonstration meetings during the Winter months. Garden visits or natural history walks during late Spring. Summer social meeting.
