The Hertfordshire Group is one of 50 regional and specialist groups of the Hardy Plant Society. The aim of the Society, which celebrated its’ 60th anniversary in 2017, is to stimulate interest in growing hardy herbaceous perennials.
The Hertfordshire Group are a friendly and enthusiastic group of gardeners and garden lovers of all levels of skill and ability, with a common interest in learning more about perennial plants.
We have a programme of indoor talks, with varied knowledgeable and well-known speakers held on the first Saturday of the month at 2pm from October – April in Wheathampstead.
These talks are followed by refreshments with home-made cakes, and a members’ plant stall.
Our summer programme usually includes a coach trip, garden and nursery visits, a Seedling Swap and a public Plant Sale.
The Hardy Plant Society, with the support of local groups, organises events around the country for members such as study days, garden visits and lectures.
Benefits of membership include two colour journals and three newsletters annually and the opportunity to take part in the Seed Distribution and Plant Conservation Schemes.
There are also a number of specialist groups that include Galanthus, Geraniums, Half Hardy, Peony, Pulmonaria, Shade and Woodland Plants, Variegated Plants and Ranunculaceae that hold their own programmes of events.
