Support the future of Ness Botanic Gardens

Make a difference!

Ness Botanic Gardens is a charity and your support is vital to enable us to help keep alive Arthur Kilpin Bulley's passion for plants and to inspire that same passion in others. There are a number of ways you can help.

Brand new special membership offer! If you are searching for the perfect gift this Mother’s Day then look no further. From now until the 22nd of March you can buy any double membership, (Double Concession or Double Adult) for the price of a single when you buy it on behalf of your Mum. Please specify that you would like to redeem this offer at the admissions desk to ensure you get this special rate.

This offer equates to a £21 saving on Double Adult memberships and £19 on Double Concession memberships. Please note that this saving only applies to the first year and that the membership will revert back to standard prices upon renewal. This offer is only redeemable when buying a gift membership for your Mum.

Do not feel excluded if you do not fit the criteria for this particular special offer as we will be promoting different offers throughout the year, including for Dad’s, Families and much more! So keep your eyes peeled.
