Terms and conditions for the Memory Garden Tablets at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE)

  1. All Memory Garden Tablets are strictly limited to a period of 10 years from the date the tablet is mounted on the Memory Garden Wall.
  2. Just prior to the end of the 10 year period, you will be contacted using your last known contact details and given the opportunity to purchase a new commemoration at RBGE’s future price for the scheme. If you would like to purchase a new commemoration at the end of the 10 year term, please keep the Fundraising team updated with any change to your address, phone number or email address. Contact details for the Fundraising team can be found on the Contact Us page.
  3. All Memory Garden Tablets remain the property of RBGE.
  4. Should the tablet become damaged, RBGE will take all reasonable actions to arrange for a replacement tablet. A maximum of one replacement is permitted in the ten year period. Additional costs will be incurred by the purchaser should further replacements be required or requested.
  5. Cleaning of the tablets will not be undertaken by RBGE, nor will visitors be permitted to clean their tablet without prior permission. Please contact the Fundraising team to obtain permission if required.
  6. The climbers on the Memory Garden Wall may grow underneath and over the tablets. RBGE will endeavour to train the plants underneath and around the tablets. Should any growth cover the tablet, please get in touch and we’ll arrange for pruning, if appropriate.
  7. Once mounted, the location of your tablet is fixed and will not be moved by RBGE during the 10 year period unless damage is sustained and a replacement location sought.
  8. No externally sourced plant material is allowed on-site, therefore floral tributes are not permitted in the Garden. All such plant material will immediately be removed and destroyed.
  9. RBGE reserves the right to change the terms and conditions. An updated copy will be sent to you should any changes occur.
