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 finished the year in style with an entertaining presentation from Paolo Arrigo from Franchi Seeds. Paolo encouraged us to grow local vegetables and fruit to help maintain the diversity of supply and gave us lots of ideas for varieties to try. He also brought along Italian themed products for us to buy - great for Christmas presents - and even serenaded us on his accordion!
