About the Suffolk Gardens Trust

We were founded in 1995 and are dedicated to the appreciation, research and conservation of gardens, parks and other forms of designed landscapes. We are part of a network of 37 county gardens trusts, each independent but affiliated to a national body, The Gardens Trust.


Membership offers opportunities to:

  • Visit gardens that are not usually open to the public
  • Hear talks by experts about aspects of our gardening heritage
  • Receive two full-colour newsletters a year
  • Play an active part in the research, recording and conservation of Suffolk’s gardens
  • Support the training of the next generation of gardening professionals
  • Support local garden-related projects
  • Meet people with similar interests

Visit our Events Page to see what are doing, or, better still, join us – you will be very welcome!

The Aims of the Trust Are To:

  • Stimulate the appreciation of Suffolk’s garden heritage through visits, talks and publications
  • Advance the understanding of Suffolk’s garden heritage by promoting research and compiling a register of the county’s historic and significant designed landscapes
  • Promote and encourage the conservation and care of Suffolk’s garden heritage by the dissemination of information and by considered involvement in the planning process
  • Provide bursaries to support the training of a new generation of horticultural professionals
  • Provide grants for garden-related projects that accord with our aims
