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 Day 2020
Pulmonaria Day 2020 will be held on Saturday 18th April at the lovely HOLEHIRD Gardens near Windermere in the Lake District. Group member Rosemary Ashley is a volunteer there and has created a Pulmonaria Walk within the garden to showcase Pulmonarias.
The morning meeting will be held in the meeting room at the Garden. Apart from the AGM there will be a talk by our Newsletter Editor Gordon James on Pulmonarias in his garden.
There will be the increasingly popular Seedling Competition. So if a seedling has popped up in your garden that you think has something special or different, then why not bring it along to the meeting to show to us all and at the same time enter it in the competition.
There will also be a Group plant stall where you will almost certainly be able to find plants that are not listed in the Plant Finder or available at any nursery. We also have an auction for any rare or special plants that are brought for sale.
You do not have to be a member to come to the meeting, visitors are welcome. However, it is cheaper to join the Group than come to the meeting as a visitor, as this year Group members come for free.
We would love to welcome you to the meeting and why not make a weekend of it in lovely Cumbria.
