The Ceredigion Branch organises one public lecture per year, which is given at the Annual general Meeting in early spring. There are also at least three field excursions to local gardens during the summer months. These may be private gardens not open to the public or private visits to better-known gardens. In every case the visit has a scholarly character, with a talk on the garden history and condition from the owner, where possible, and additional archival research by members of the Branch. Our members include experts in many relevant fields including geology, botany and landscape so we usually all learn a great deal from each other.
