These are the dates on which I am already booked for 2017/18.  When making a booking, please check with me first as I may have a non-garden history commitment on that day.  If you would like to come to a talk and are not already a member of the group, please let me know and I will check with them that they will be happy for you to attend.  Most groups are quite happy to allow this but you may have to pay a small "visitors fee" in accordance with their rules and regulations.
