We've started this year's seed distribution scheme as usual.  Please send us your seeds as soon as they are ready.
The office is now closed until  28th September. Meanwhile we will try to answer your email enquiries; this may take us longer than usual.

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.

New members and Renewals:  WAIT! Our membership year starts on 1st October 2020 and runs until December 2021. To avoid paying twice please wait to renew or join the society until after 1st October. Payments received before this date will fall into the current year of membership.

Just 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.

HPS members, you have a chance to contribute to the discussion on the future of your society.
Download the questionnaire here (Word doc or pdf). Please send completed forms to the office.

The AGM has been cancelled this year  because of the coronavirus situation.
