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
Thank you so much to Paul Harrison for stepping in at short notice to replace our June speaker who was unfortunately taken ill at the last minute. Paul shared with us his list of '50 Herbaceous Perennials Every Garden Must Have' and gave us lots of ideas for our own gardens.
We were particularly grateful to Paul for making the journey from Essex given that he'd been heavily involved in organising the Open Garden Scheme in his local village the previous weekend.
We were delighted he was able to bring plants for sale with proceeds of over £600 from the weekend and the sales at our meeting going to the Farleigh Hospice in Essex.
Tickets are now on sale for Passionate About Plants 2020 which will take place on Saturday 4th April at Brunel University, Uxbridge. We have an exciting line up of TV celebrity speakers and specialist nurseries. Purchase tickets and find out more here.
We have no meetings in July and August. Our next meeting is on Monday 2nd September: Acers and Improving Soil Condition - George Lockwood.
