A Little About Us
The Garden Club of Bermuda was started in 1921 to stimulate interest in horticulture, floral design and related subjects, and to aid in the conservation of natural resources of the Island. To this end its members work hard to raise money for horticultural and environmental scholarships, and to support the local environmental community, whilst having fun along the way!
THE GARDEN CLUB OF BERMUDA'S PLANT SALE will take place on Saturday, April 28th, 2018 in the Slathouse of the Botanical Gardens, Paget (see calendar for directions). Beautiful roses, herbs, shrubs and trees, flowering plants such as geraniums, cala lilies, day lilies, Bird of Paradise, artemisia, as well as succulents, bamboo palms and much more will all be available for purchase.
