Hardy Plant Society: HPS: Local Groups

HPS local groups welcome visitors and are a great way to meet knowledgeable and enthusiastic gardeners. The groups are run locally, and so can tailor their activities to those their members are interested in and enjoy. Most offer a combination of:

  • talks by experts with the opportunity to ask questions and talk to them;
  • plant sales;
  • visits to local gardens and nurseries;
  • social events like coffee mornings or evening parties, usually in members’ own gardens.

Some also organise longer coach or car sharing trips, to gardens and nurseries further away.

A few groups have created mini-groups, each with its own programme of events and informal meetings.

Why not come along to a meeting? Our mini-groups also welcome visitors but as the smaller mini-groups often meet in members’ houses it would be a good idea to contact them to find out their next venue.
