Hello from the PGG

Welcome to the PGG

A warm welcome to the Professional Gardeners' Guild community site. For over 30 years the PGG has been the meeting touchstone for professional gardeners employed in private gardens and estates. Our aims are to promote professional contact, share information and skills and, through our extensive ongoing learning and traineeships, to continue to provide the horticultural industry with skilled gardeners and garden managers. But it's not all work, work, work – the PGG events are very social activities and we look forward to welcoming new members. Learn more – watch our membership video.
