We are open to works depicting gardens, gardeners and gardening, plants, nature and wildlife, in any media. Works must be framed with rigid backing, so they can be hung on the walls.

Works may be, but need not be for sale. If for sale, we will display the price with your contact details, for you to deal directly with interested buyers.
