‘The AGs has over 50 Groups in the UK and the Irish Republic ... AGS Local Groups usually meet once a month during the Autumn, Winter and Spring. The winter meetings usually involve lectures on alpines and rock plants, and how to grow them. In the Spring, most groups organise garden visits and trips as well as their own local flower shows. The program for most local groups is listed here, as well as a list of venues and contacts.’
