Celebrate Life Instalments Policy

Whilst it is the preference of Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh that commemorations are paid for in full and upfront, it is possible to pay by instalments for Bench Adoptions, the Hope Tree and Tree Adoptions. Failure to keep up with the agreed instalment plan will instigate a process where if no agreement is reached, the commemoration will be removed from the Garden.

What follows are the minimum requirements for each scheme. Faster payment is possible and, should this be your wish, you can contact us directly.
