Reopening of our Gardens
We are delighted to be able to welcome our members, supports and visitors back to our Gardens from 1 July 2020.
New health and safety measures will be in place to protect you. Entry to our Edinburgh Garden will require a time slot ticket, booked in advance.

During the lockdown period we were unable to send out new membership cards. We are now starting to send these out although there may continue to be a delay in processing your membership as our staff are still working remotely. However, we are extending all memberships by three months and so you can continue to use your existing membership card/s when booking a visit to the Garden. If you are due to renew soon we shall add the three months to your current membership and invite you to renew later on.
If you have any queries relating to your membership you can call our team on the following numbers:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
