We currently run a series of EGS Graduates Garden Tour days which are exclusive for graduates of our Diploma courses. Our latest visit in June took us to two exquisite private gardens in Berkshire, one designed by world-renowned Landscape Architect Arabella Lennox-Boyd and the other a delightful valley garden. Our next visit will be in September 2023.

Our vast contact list allows us to offer small groups rare guided visits to private gardens in the UK and in Europe.
