Merlin Trust Horticultural Grants

Merlin Trust Horticultural Grants

A passion for plants is the main requirement to qualify for a grant from the Merlin Trust.

Grants are awarded to enable keen horticulturalists to visit gardens in Britain or abroad, or to travel to see wild plants in their native habitats. Travel and other expenses are paid.

The trust was set up by Valerie Finnis, widow of Sir David Scott, in memory of her husband and her son Merlin, killed in World War Two.

Any idea, large or small, will be considered, in field such as photography, painting, written observations, seed collection, the conservation of garden plants or to travel to study plants and gardens.

Successful applicants in the past have trekked across Nepal discovering rare plants, visited botanic gardens in the USA and Canada, and studied trees in Kent.

    Hey Mr./Mrs. TWT, if I were to win this grant, how much money would I be granted to grow my plants in my garden?

    This sounds amazing and certainly different than most other grants I’ve heard of!
    Such a worthwhile venture.
