Essex Group



Welcome to the Essex group's page.

We are a small enthusiastic group and offer our members a range of events over the year - including garden visits, lectures and meetings.

To find out more about our group please contact one of our Committee Members  or come to one of our coffee mornings. We meet between 10.00 and 12.00 on the 2nd Tuesday of every month in the CafĂ© at RHS Hyde Hall where our members and friends meet up and talk about our favourite subject - PLANTS!

If you can think of ways to improve our group or this webpage please contact a Committee  member. We are always keen to hear your views on how we can help our group grow for the future.
