This will be the culmination of our 30th Anniversary celebration. We will be welcoming Bob Brown to talk to us in his own inimitable style and enjoying a delicious homemade tea.
Ben Potterton from Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery in Norfolk will be talking to us. Some members made a memorable visit to the nursery and wildlife garden in 2014.
Members’ Christmas Party
Members come together to celebrate the festive season with talks, displays and a quiz. And, of course, there will be delicious food and a chance to chat to friends.
Cambridge University Botanic Garden holds the National Collection of Tulipa species so this will be a chance to find out about these fascinating, unusual and beautiful plants.
We all want good plants for our gardens that are healthy and have lots of flowers with good colour. Luckily, there are people developing such plants and bringing them to market.
In March 1988 100 members laid the foundations for the Kent Group of the Hardy Plant Society. 30 years later, we’re still going strong with a fantastic range of activities.
Gardening is usually something of a solitary occupation so belonging to a society like ours gives us the opportunity to meet other like-minded people to share our love of plants. Some of us are experts, some are beginners and most of us are somewhere in between but we are all keen to learn more and to share the knowledge we gather.
