EPS visit to Kew Gardens

Saturday 22nd September saw 24 members meet up for our annual get together at Kew Gardens.


The main focus this time was to visit the recently re-opened and refurbished Temperate House, but the day also coincided with the rare chance to see the tropical nursery which is not usually open to the public.


A great day was had by all, despite the wet weather after we arrived!!!
