Pulmonaria Group

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.

Pulmonaria Day 2018

The 2018 Pulmonaria Group AGM and meeting will take place on April 14th at Winterbourne Earls Village hall near Salisbury, Wiltshire.
The morning will follow the usual pattern of plant Sales, AGM and a talk by Bob Brown entitled ‘Payback time, life beyond lungwort’.
This sounds like a controversial talk, which we have come to expect from Bob. In the afternoon we will be visiting the garden of our Chairman, Lyn Miles, who has nice range of named Pulmonarias with also many interesting seedlings. We will also visit the attractive garden of member Karen Robertson who lives close to Lyn.
Visitors and non HPS members are very welcome.
