A registered charity promoting hardy herbaceous plants, we grow and study these plants in our own gardens, and try to keep rarer varieties in cultivation.  We share our knowledge and love of these plants with other gardeners whether they're experts, beginners or somewhere in between.

Have you got your members' newsletter yet?  It was sent out on 18 November and includes our president Roy Lancaster’s lockdown, our first competition with £250 worth of prizes, how four nurseries coped during the pandemic and profiles of many people, for example our blogger Nadine MitschunasYour seed list is there too.  If you haven't got these yet, you can find them on this website.

Recently published… the new HPS booklet, Border Phlox, is here.

Phlox have been popular garden plants for over 250 years and are starting to flower now, from July through to September. Phlox add colour and perfume to summer borders and this book is packed with information to help you grow them, as well as descriptions and colour photos of many cultivars.
