Grampian & Tayside Group

Grampian & Tayside

For more details on our group, see our web site at

The Grampian & Tayside group of Plant Heritage covers the largest geographical area in the UK extending from Fife northwards and ranging from Poolewe in the west of Scotland to Aberdeen on the east coast. A total of 28 National Collections are held in the group’s area ranging from Aloe & Gasteria in Aberdeen to Meconopsis in Perthshire and Galanthus in Fife. Something for everyone regardless of the time of year you want to visit.

As a group, Grampian & Tayside hold a number of events throughout the year to raise funds helping to promote conservation and education. Our main fundraiser is our Plant Sale at Forfar in April and you’ll also find us at Dundee Flower & Food Festival later in the year.

See our What’s On page for a full list of garden visits, lectures and shows; our Looking Good Now page highlights which National Collections to visit month by month.

We always welcome new members so for information on joining our group please contact our Secretary by emailing
