Welcome to the official blog of the Leicestershire and Rutland Gardens Trust.  We will be writing about our events, our garden visits and things that interest us.

We run a varied series of events throughout the year and a link to the forthcoming events page on the main site can be found at the top of this page, but whilst I have your attention I thought I would plug our Celebrity Lecture which this year will be given by James Alexander Sinclair.
James will be following in the footsteps of Joe Swift, Cleve West and Chris Beardshaw.  This is a key event for the Trust as all the profits go towards our 'Schools into Gardening' scheme.

More information can be found on our main website including how to book tickets, but the main details are:

Time: 7.30pm
Date: Wednesday 16th September 2015
Venue: Leicester University

Tickets:  Members £12.50 Non-members £15.00 (includes a soft drink/glass of wine).
