Welcome to the website of the Hardy Plant Society, Southern Counties Group, one of the local groups of the national Hardy Plant Society. We welcome new members of all ages and gardening experience, from beginners to experts: all you need is to love plants and gardens. Our particular interest is hardy herbaceous perennials, though our talks cover many aspects of plants and gardens.
The main feature of our meetings during the winter months is a talk by a well-known or local expert. Come along as a visitor and you’ll be made very welcome: if you love plants as much as we do, we’re sure you’ll want to join the Group.
During the summer months our members enjoy a programme of garden visits. Find out more on the About Us page.
