Our richly illustrated journal showcases the best of plants in the wild, cultivation and conservation. It is packed full of articles and practical advice for gardeners of all abilities.

Choose from a wide range of gardening titles. Our online bookshop has something for everyone. Some speciality books (including the Society's own publications) are only available from our site.

Members have access to one of the biggest seed exchanges in the world. Each year they can choose from over 5000 varieties, including many rarities.

Running from February to October, members get free access to over 20 shows every year. As well as seeing some of the UK's finest alpines, there are opportunities to buy plants from other members and specialist nurseries.

Members can access local and specialist interest groups across the UK and ROI. Groups are a great way to learn new skills, share your own knowledge and meet like-minded people.
