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 are social! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram
George Lockwood resumed our programme of evening meetings in September with a fascinating talk on how to grow acers, including sharing some some home made, organic recipes for dealing with garden pests and black spot, and giving us lots of ideas for the best acers for us to grow in our own gardens.
On Monday 7th October, we are looking forward to welcoming award winning garden writer, lecturer and organic gardener, Val Bourne. She will talk to us about 'Roses and Peonies - A Marriage Made in Heaven' looking at the history of peony breeding and their use as companion plants for roses. Everyone is welcome.
Don't forget that, on Wednesday 25th September, we have our final trip of the year to the National Trust Chartwell, the family home of Winston Churchill. Find out more about it here. Everyone is welcome to join us.
