Mediterranean Garden Society
The Mediterranean Garden Society (MGS) acts as a focus for everyone who has a special interest in the plants and gardens of mediterranean-climate regions. The MGS has members in thirty-eight countries throughout the world and Branches of the society have been formed in many areas to organise meetings and activities locally. The society publishes a quarterly journal The Mediterranean Garden with articles contributed by its members. The garden at Sparoza, just outside Athens, is managed by the society to demonstrate gardening that is in sympathy with the natural surroundings and our philosophy of waterwise gardening. The MGS Forum is a place for discussing mediterranean plants, cultivated and wild, as well as every aspect of gardens and gardening in a mediterranean climate. MGS members may also join in the Seed Exchange. The previous version of the MGS website has been archived and can viewed in non-responsive format.

The MGS is a non-profit-making association founded in Greece in 1994. The aims of the MGS are broad so as to cover the wide range of mediterranean plant and gardening interests of its members.
The Mediterranean Garden Society has never relied on state or business funding but operates very largely on income from subscriptions. Donations offered by our members, no matter how small, are also very important to the Society’s continued success. If you would like to make a donation you can do so easily when you are renewing your annual subscription or at any other time by going to the Donations page.
