Welcome to the website of the Hardy Plant Society, Middlesex Group, one of the local groups of the national Hardy Plant Society. We are a friendly group - both of experienced gardeners and enthusiastic newcomers - but we all share an interest in hardy, herbaceous, perennials and enjoy discovering more about how to grow and display these beautiful and varied plants in our gardens.
We meet regularly, usually on the first Monday on every month at Field End Junior School, Field End Road, Eastcote. We have a varied Programme of Speakers, as well as plants for sale at our meetings. We also visit gardens, shows and other places of horticultural interest and we organise three Public Plant Sales each year. You can find out more on the Trips and Plant Sales page.
New members are always assured of a warm welcome, so why not come along and join us?
We got our 2019 speaker programme off to a great start with an entertaining presentation from Andrew Sankey on Funny Features for the Garden. Who knew that the Romans introduced topiary to Britain or that William and Mary were responsible for greenhouses, orangeries and conservatories? We do now!
Our next meeting takes place on Monday 4th March. Our speaker will be Jan Vaughan, Chair of the National HPS, who will talk about the work of the Society and, in particular, its Conservation Scheme. This will be followed by our Annual General Meeting and a cheese and wine social. Hope to see you there. Don't forget that our meetings will now start at 7.30pm.
