As a valued supporter and friend of the Gardens we wanted to update you on the current COVID-19 situation at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
The health of our staff, volunteers and visitors is our priority during this difficult time, and we have taken the decision to temporarily close all four Gardens of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to the public - Edinburgh, Benmore, Logan and Dawyck.
Please be assured that, as a world-leading centre of plant science and conservation, our priceless Living Collection of plants will be maintained as normal at this time. We have plans in place to continue with the care of our collections.
The decision has also been made to postpone all RBGE events including the following Friends’ events:
- 14 April Coffee Morning: A New Glasshouse for RBGE
- 16 April Benmore Friends’ AGM
- 21 April Logan Friends’ AGM
- 27 April Dawyck Friends’ AGM
- 7 May Edinburgh Friends’ AGM
- 3-6 June Friends 2020 Conference and Tour Programme
We shall arrange to refund all those who have already purchased tickets for these events as soon as possible.
We appreciate your continued support during this difficult time and look forward to welcoming you back to the Garden in the not too distant future. Please stay in touch online and we will share news and updates on the website and through social media.

Friends of RBGE Committees
All Members of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh are seen as Friends of RBGE and the local Committees of the four Gardens act on behalf of all Members in supporting our work. The primary responsibility of these Committees is to organise and run a programme of events with the following aims:
- to ensure continued engagement of Members with RBGE
- to generate income to support the work of RBGE
- to raise the profile of RBGE and encourage increased recruitment to Membership
Events include monthly coffee mornings, evening talks, tours to other gardens in the UK and overseas and special guest lectures.
The income raised from these events supports many projects in the gardens that would otherwise not happen.
If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering with your local Friends' Committee or would like to help at events please contact the Membership Office on 0131 552 5339 or email@example.com.
