The concept of a Doon Gardening Society was born in 1955 when Late Mr. D.D.Suri after retirement decided to settle down in this beautiful garden city of Dehra Dun.


The first meeting and the laying of the foundation stone took place in 1959.


Late Mr. D.D. Suri, an eminent botanist, after his retirement made Dehra Dun his home. He was a keen gardener and believed that Dehra Doon,  could be called the city of gardens. He visualised the Dehra Dun of those days with houses in 2 Bigha (2000 Sq Yards) and more were ideal for a proper gardens. With this in mind and to make Dehra Dun a city of Gardens, he founded the Doon Gardening Society.


Soon a number of eminent Doonites joined the group and the DGS was formed.

Once a month meeting, in rotation was held at the member's home. Their garden was visited, discussions had regarding the gardening activities, fauna and flora exchanged.

On most occasions, Garden experts were arranged to give an informative and meaningful talk.

This was followed by a sumptuous high tea arranged by the lady of the house.
