Covid 19 Update

Last Updated: June 2020

We are carefully monitoring the advice from the Scottish and UK Governments and the NHS about the COVID-19 situation.  As social distancing is of paramount importance, many gardens have closed to keep staff and visitors safe, but are following government guidance carefully to see when they might re-open.

Some of our members are open and welcome local people from within walking distance to use paths and woodlands for their daily exercise, being careful to follow government guidance.   If you do walk into the local area, please keep dogs under control and use hand sanitisers if you open any gates.

Please do browse our site and visit member garden websites to check the current situation.

Be sure to follow our social media, as we share news from member gardens who continue to offer garden inspiration and appreciate your support.

We also have wonderful nurseries and garden centre members who have been working hard to respond to growing demand through online and telephone orders and are now re-opening to customers.  Please check their websites to find out what their new opening arrangements are.
