Dulwich and its neighbourhood is a green oasis bejewelled by its gardens – many magnificent, all inspirational, and all backed by astonishing depths of gardening knowledge. Each Spring the Gardens Committee publishes a comprehensive booklet “Dulwich Gardens open for charity”, with details of the local gardens that are open to the public during the year. The Committee also organises an annual talk and an annual coach tour/visit, open to all members of the Dulwich Society and their friends, and occasional local visits. Our talk this year is by Matt Keightley, Chelsea award-winner – see below – and our coach visit will be in June to the Oxford Botanic Garden and to Waterperry Gardens - details also below.
We contribute articles to the Society’s Journal, and generally we support gardening and related activities in our area. The Dulwich Society is an affiliated society of the Royal Horticultural Society. We publicise our events in the Society’s quarterly Journal and its monthly eNewsletter, both of which are available to members of the Society. The Gardens Committee normally meets four times a year. If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact Jeremy Prescott.
Dulwich Gardens open for Charity 2017
Our brochure, Dulwich Gardens open for Charity, has been distributed to all members of the Dulwich Society and is available at local garden centres and many other outlets. Do visit and support the gardens - they are all magnificent and they also raise significant sums for both local and national charities.
Talk to the owners, look for ideas, enjoy the refreshments, and above all enjoy the gardens themselves. You cannot but come away inspired and uplifted! Garden opening dates are shown below, with full details in the brochure.
