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.

The new edition of 'Peonies' was published at the end of January. Gail Harland has been growing peonies for nearly 30 years and shares her expertise and enthusiasm. The first part of the booklet includes information about the art and history of peonies as well as their structure, cultivation and propagation. The Directory of Peonies then includes both old favourites and new additions with lots of lovely photos. There are useful Best Choice lists for early and late flowering, for scent and for cutting, as well suggestions for good places to go to see peonies.

The cover features the Tree Peony, P. ‘Rosy Prospects’.
