It’s Cool in the Shade

Are the shady parts of your garden a problem - or an opportunity?
Whether you are looking to grow great woodland and foliage plants in that shady area or have already mastered it and want to pass your knowledge on to others, this is for you!
We are considering starting a Shade Group as an HPS special interest group that is dedicated to shade and woodland gardening.
The group could hold study days, garden visits, circulate a newsletter and run a section of the HPS website dedicated to plants for shade. If you are interested in being part of this please contact Joe Sime at shade@hardy-plant.org.uk.

We need your seed

Recent warm weather means that seed is ripening much earlier this year so please don’t let it go to waste. The HPS seed distribution system relies on members, like you, collecting seed for us. It’s easy to do. If you haven’t collected seed for us before, there are full details on the seed collection page.
