Since mid-March, the impact of coronavirus has become more serious and widespread. Our planned events and visits are inevitably affected, therefore the lecture and garden visits arranged from May until August have regrettably been postponed. Later events will be reviewed and bookings accepted when it safe to do so. We will post further news as soon as we are able.
