The Management Committee is concerned, through the general manager and staff, with the detail management of the gardens. It implements the policies set out by the Trustees and organizes any special events and functions. It meets about ten times a year.
The Gardens Committee provides advice and guidance to both the Trustees and Management Committee on horticultural and the historical matters concerning the maintenance and restoration of the gardens. It meets formally about 3 times a year but members are often consulted between meetings on specific matters.
