Featured Conservation Plants

The HPS Conservation Scheme aims to identify and preserve some of the garden plants in danger of being lost. HPS members across the country, either within their local group or individually, grow plants chosen for the scheme and report back on their experience of growing and propagating them.

Since the present scheme started in 1998, we have been successful in conserving over 30 plant varieties which we consider worthy of being grown in British gardens. However, a large number of potentially gardenworthy plants is still in need of conservation.

If you are interested in making this or any other of our conservation plants available commercially, please contact our National Coordinator.
