The Hardy Plant Society is concerned about the continued availability of rarer garden plants. Countless fine plants have already disappeared from cultivation. We are working to keep less common and lesser-known perennial plants available both to our own members and to gardeners generally.

We have a national Conservation Scheme which aims to identify and preserve at least some of the plants in danger of being lost. Volunteer members of the scheme grow the plants in a variety of places across the country and report back on how well the plants have grown for them. They also propagate the plants and pass them round so it’s a good way of getting your hands on a rare plant!

The Conservation Scheme is open to any member as an individual or as part of a local group. Get in touch with us if you are interested and want to find out more.
