Upcoming Events

Members are eligible to attend events in any part of Ireland, so don’t limit your browsing to your own location. The categorisation by geographic region is for administration and organisational purposes only.

Non-members are very welcome at our events though there will be a charge for insurance purposes. Do come along and join us and, perhaps, become a member. There will be events which will be restricted to members only – perhaps because of the size of the garden and the need to restrict numbers or because this is the wish of the garden owner – and, on these occasions, unfortunately, we cannot accommodate non-members.

We occasionally list events of other groups in the ‘Other Events’ category, generally for groups we regularly work with. These are not part of the official IGPS programme but may be of interest to members.

“The Gardens of Scotland” – with Colin Wren @ National Botanic Gardens
Oct 25 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
"The Gardens of Scotland" - with Colin Wren @ National Botanic Gardens

Colin Wren, Gardens and Designed Landscapes Manager (Edinburgh and East) at the National Trust for Scotland  will bring us on a journey of the must see gardens under his care. He will guide us on some of the rare and unusual plants to look out for and also tell us about the challenges and privileges of leading these gardens. Trained at the Royal Horticultural Society Gardens, Wisley and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Edinburgh, Colin has also worked as Gardens Manager at Edinburgh Zoo, and nursery mangarer at Binny Plants, a renowned nursery and on-line plant supplier in Scotland.

This lecture will be for all of us who face similar challenges. There will be time at the end of the lecture to answer your questions regarding plant choice and care. Colin’s lecture will be a great introduction to the many great gardens of Scotland to be visited.
