The 2024 Appeal

During this year, it is hoped that lots of people who enjoy and value this very special place – whether it is the plants or the people or both – will give £24 (or more) to help it continue to reach its high standards. Your generosity will help us to cover the escalating costs of wages and utilities we are struggling to meet.
