Pulmonaria 'Mrs Kittle'
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 Group 2022 Annual Meeting on Saturday April 9th
The Pulmonaria Group Annual meeting in 2022 will be held in Hallow Parish Hall near Worcester. There will be two talks. The first is by Robin Pearce, who as well as being a member of the Group, is also a member of the RHS Herbaceous committee. Robin will give a talk entitled ‘Spring Flowers’. The second talk is by member Gordon James entitled ‘A short life among Pulmonarias’. In the afternoon the Group will visit Robin Pearce’s garden.
