The Society is passionate about sharing knowledge of alpine plants. We publish our journal four times a year and a range of books for both the experienced gardener and those new to alpines - there is something for everyone. Subjects range from specific genera and species to general gardening titles.

Books & Publications

All AGS books and publications are available to buy in our shop. Alongside our own titles, we sell a wide selection of acclaimed books from other sources. There are books suitable for all levels of gardener, with topics ranging from plant-specific through to photography and garden design.

AGS members receive a 20% discount on all books we sell, not just our own publications.

AGS Journal

We publish our prestigious journal, The Alpine Gardener, four times a year. The journal is exclusive to AGS members and features a wealth of information on growing, cultivating and conserving alpine plants.
