These are the dates on which I am already booked for 2019 and 2020.  When making a booking, please check with me first as I may have a non-garden history commitment on that day, although I have indicated a few dates when I know I am not going to be available for at least part of the day. 

If you would like to come to a talk and are not already a member of the group concerned,  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.
