We warmly welcome new members to enjoy the wonderful designed landscapes in Devon, to help us promote and conserve them. The one thing our members have in common is a passion for gardens, their history and plants. Our programme of talks, visits, seminars and conferences seeks to explore the diversity of the county's designed landscapes, the history of their development, about the families who owned them, people who designed, shaped and managed them, the gardeners that maintained and tended the plants, the nurseries that supplied those plants, and how the landscapes have been used and enjoyed over the centuries. By becoming a member you will be joining like-minded individuals with a very broad spectrum of interests in gardens and horticulture, all keen to learn and share.
