The office is now open as usual, 9-5 on Monday to Thursday and 9-1 on Friday.

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.

AGM 2021

HPS members are invited to attend the online AGM on Wednesday 29th September at 7:30pm. The agenda and ballot paper are available here, and all members are entitled to vote. The closing date for voting is 15th September 2021.

The new edition of the Euphorbias booklet is now available.

Written by National Collection Holder, Don Witton, it updates his 2010 edition. This 80 page booklet is packed with information to help you choose the best euphorbias for your garden and look after them well. It includes hundreds of excellent photographs illustrating the wide range of euphorbias available, ranging from 5cm to 2m.

You can order your copy here.

Online now, with a beautiful cover picture of a Dicentra ‘Pink Amore', the July newsletter features:
