Why support the

Hardy Plant Society?

Help us spread the benefits of plants and gardening. Our members tell us they feel relaxation, happiness, satisfaction, calmness and love from plants and gardening. We want to see these benefits reach everyone, and at the same time improve our environment.

Since 1957 we’ve been promoting plants and helping our members adapt to changes in our environment. Entirely member funded, we run a network of local groups around the country and are always looking to start more.

Our members love to meet each and share knowledge. Learn from others and in return share your knowledge in writing, video, audio, photographs or talks, should you wish to.
Read our publications, delivered in print and full colour. The Hardy Plant contains original writing about plants and gardening. The Newsletter contains our HPS news plus interviews, competitions and other writing. Cornucopia is a collection of the best writing from around our local and special interest groups.
Make use of our advice service where you need extra help with a plant. Join one of our special interest groups when you want to go deeper into a particular topic. Take part in our annual Seed Distribution and receive a wide range of seeds cheaply. Join our conservation scheme to help preserve plants at risk.

I would be lost without the HPS and the people I have met through the society. The knowledge I have gained both by talking to fellow members and speakers is incalculable. The meetings are usually a place of joy for me. From R.B. in Lincolnshire
Our group has excellent talks which touch on plants other than hardy perennials which I always enjoy. I have learnt a great deal which has enhanced my time in the garden and my love and appreciation of plants. I enjoy the Journals and am very happy to be an HPS member. From J. T. in Rutland.
The HPS has completely changed the way I approach gardening, opening me up to plants I never knew existed and had never thought of growing. All my friends who have benefited from all the plants I have grown over the years would I am sure, like to thank you for all your hard work. From T.M. in Powys
The HPS meetings are something that I look forward to every month, with the possibilities for purchasing interesting plants, visiting gardens and enjoying the company of other keen gardeners is very enjoyable, especially as I live on my own. It is a real pleasure. From J. H. in Sussex
My garden wouldn’t be what it is now without my enriching forty-year membership of the HPS. It has been central to my gardening life – discovering plants, making friends, memorable outings, trips and Autumn weekends. From A. P. in Essex
