Surrey Garden Design Group is open to anyone with an interest in design, landscapes and beautiful gardens. We usually meet once a month in Stoke d’Abernon but currently this is happening online via Zoom. Currently our membership stands at 53. We’re a friendly bunch with a mix of those interested professionally and personally.
You can see our programme of events HERE, but we arrange a mix of talks and presentations from designers, plantspeople, technical specialists, business experts and artists. Recent past speakers have included Juliet Sargeant, Rosy Hardy from Hardy’s Plants, Andree Davies and Adam White, Landscape Plus and Kate Gould
We also arrange visits as part of our programme to gardens, nurseries and suppliers and recently we have visited London Stone’s new showroom in Farnham, a residential garden designed by Marcus Barnett in Sutton and seen behind the scenes at Van Arnhem Nursery in Godalming.
We also currently have 2 smaller Professional Development Groups set up by Members to provide peer support for those working in the industry, allowing them to share challenges and ideas on good practice. This has become a lifeline for our many members who work on their own.
Membership of the Group is £40 for 2020 and renewals are every January. As a member you can access:
Visitors are always welcome at our talks and entry fee is face to face meetings are £10 and to online events £5.
