The European Boxwood & Topiary Society
The European Boxwood and Topiary Society (EBTS) is devoted to encouraging the appreciation, cultivation and knowledge of Boxwood and Topiary and to further extend both historic and scientific research in the subject.
Our aims are to encourage, improve and extend the cultivation of boxwood and to disseminate knowledge of boxwood and topiary, in all its forms, by means of publications, promotions, exhibitions, scientific research, European co-operation and exchange, conferences and visits, various meetings and other appropriate activities.
We are a European body with active membership in the UK, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. Further relationships in Italy, Portugal and Spain are currently being developed. Each country is responsible for running its own organisation within the overall framework of our Vision and Aims, and under the corporate governance of EBTS Europe. A longstanding and very strong relationship with The American Boxwood Society (ABS) in Virginia, USA has been in existence for many years and which we value greatly.
Our members comprise garden historians, writers, garden designers, scientists, nurserymen, great garden owners and professionals, as well as the many fine amateur gardeners who are the backbone of the whole culture of gardens.
We are a “not for profit” organisation with members paying an annual fee to their own respective country organisations.
Our annual flagship magazine is called Topiarius and is issued to all members in Europe.
Do you need an occasional gentle reminder to book tickets for EBTS UK events or want to hear about new items on the website? Why not subscribe to our email update & reminder service? We’ll only send emails a couple of times a year about things on the website plus reminders before each of our events.
If you decide you don’t want to receive the emails anymore you can simply click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send and that will be that. We also don’t use the information you give us for any other purpose than sending out the reminders and it isn’t sold or made available to anyone else (other than the company who provide the email service – they only use it to provide the service).
