Our alpine garden at AGS headquarters was designed by some of the best rock gardeners around! Find out more about this amazing space and plan a visit for next time you’re in the area.

The alpine garden at HQ in Pershore has been through the Covid mill just like the rest of us. But it’s still a scenic spot for a lunchtime walk. Find out more in our latest video…!

The Alpine Garden

The alpine garden at Alpine Garden Society headquarters was funded by a £1 million legacy from Stirtevant Piggin.

A die hard alpine enthusiast, Stirt asked that his money be used to build and maintain a glorious rock garden at Pershore. And so it was!

Now, the garden features an incredible array of alpine troughs, crevice gardens, sand beds, meadow and woodland areas. It has a fabulous sunken pond and pebble water feature.

We even have some of that elusive alpine favourite – tufa – that is so hard to come by! (No money for natural tufa? Find out how to make your own hypertufa instead!)

Open to Visitors

Our garden is free and open to visitors year-round. We would love for you to visit!

Local school children often come to study flowers and wildlife in the garden as part of their science and nature curriculum. Local residents can also often be seen strolling round taking in the beauty of our delicate – sometimes miniature – alpine plants.

Don’t forget to check out the gardens at Pershore College next door and the hothouse at the college entrance, as well as the delightful countryside walks a stone’s throw away from our front door.
