About the Group

The Group was formed in 1992 and it has grown steadily since then. We now have members from several countries. The aims of the Pulmonaria Group include:

keeping our members supplied with relevant information on pulmonarias both in this country and abroad;

providing opportunities to acquire pulmonarias, which may not be readily available;

sharing our knowledge and experiences of growing pulmonarias.


Each year we aim to hold a Pulmonaria Day, which incorporates our AGM. This usually takes place in April. The venue changes each year in order to try and cater for members from most parts of the UK. Whenever possible, we try to invite members from the local HPS Group of the area to participate in our Pulmonaria Days.

HPS Pulmonaria Group 25th Anniversary in 2017

The Pulmonaria Group is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2017.

For this special event, we will be having our annual meeting in Norwell Village Hall, near Newark, Nottinghamshire on April 22nd, 2017.

In the morning we will have the usual plant sales, raffle, seedling competition and talks.

In the afternoon we will be visiting Norwell Nursery where Dr Andrew Ward will show us around his collection of pulmonarias beautifully grown in a shady woodland area.

There will be plenty of pulmonarias for sale, as well as the many other plants available on the Nursery. Non group members will be welcome.
