2021conference  logo



The International Rock Garden Conference 2021 - a gathering for lovers of plants, gardens and mountains - was  ready  to be  held held 08-11 May 2021 at Perth Concert Hall, Perth, Scotland, unfortunately, due  to  the  CORONAVIRUS (SARS-COV-2 / COVID-19) and following careful consideration and discussions between the 2021 Conference Committee, the SRGC Council and the AGS, we have taken the unanimous decision to cancel the "Alpines 2021” conference, due to the ongoing coronavirus (SARS-COV-2 / COVID-19) pandemic. We do this with a heavy heart, and hope you understand this was not an easy decision, but it is our belief that the effects of this virus will be felt for a considerable time. International travel, which is an essential part of any international conference is also likely to be curtailed through next year at least. Therefore, cancellation at this time is in the best interests of everyone's health and wellbeing.

The Scottish Rhododendron Society, the Rhododendron Species Conservation Group and the  Czech Rock Gardeners Society were pleased to be sponsorship partners to the Conference but understand the reasons to cancel.

We are arranging for all booked delegates to receive a full refund of their registration fees. We have directly emailed all booked delegates with more information.

The Alpines 2021 email address will remain active and regularly monitored for some time yet. If there are any problems or queries with your refund, please contact us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Keep well all,

SRGC 2021 Committee
