THE BAMBOO SOCIETY of GREAT BRITAIN maintains links with other bamboo societies throughout the world and holds a collection of their newsletters, which it receives by exchange.
Regular weekend visits and days out are organised for members to attend where we exchange information, plant material and friendship. Apart from bamboo most of the current members have interests and knowledge of many other plant genera.
