From growing things to garden history, from urban greening to organic farming, our interests are wide-ranging. We offer a chance for all who share a love of plants to meet. For more than 30 years, we have delighted in garden visits, overseas trips, talks and social events. The Hong Kong Gardening Society gives us a chance to learn, as well as to exchange knowledge and experience with others.
There are special interest groups to join for those with a passion for orchids or wondering how to grow things in confined spaces like rooftops and balconies. We also partner with others to spread awareness of Hong Kong's rich biodiversity and abundance of flora and fauna.

Flowers of the Month:
Prolonged hot weather makes many of our favourite plants stop flowering. But we should not overlook the slow, steady performers that keep going virtually year-round. Duranta comes in several colours, providing cheerful yellow berries as well as pretty flowers.

Bird of the month:
With its beautiful eyebrows and cheerful song, the Chinese Hwamei has long been a popular cage bird. Its rather shy nature means it is more often heard than seen in the wild as it generally hides in shrubland.

Tree of the Month:
Tree care commonly has low priority because many people think trees grow so slowly and live so long that they can wait. But we enjoy them for so many reasons that we should look after them from the beginning.
