About Us

Plant Heritage works to conserve the nation’s garden plants for people to use and enjoy today and tomorrow.

The National Plant Collections® are at the heart of what we do – living plant libraries representing the diversity of our nation’s cultivated plants (plants that we have collected, bred and grown). They are created and curated by individuals or organisations who are passionate about protecting the diversity of our rich flora.

Our pioneering Threatened Plants research helps us identify plants at risk of disappearing so we can aim to put conservation plans in place to protect them.

Our members are working together to grow, share and save the diversity of garden plants. They can become Plant Guardians® who grow and nurture one or more rare and unusual plants in their own house or garden. They can take part in our annual Plant Exchange, hard-to-find plants are shared for free to members across the nation.

      Hi Gillians
      I saw your blog about Fuchsias. I am trying to get seeds for Fuchsia Decidua. Do you know where I can get some. I leave in Toronto, Canada.
      Thanks
      Eli

  1. I read with interest a blog by gillians. I am trying to contact Susyn Andrews about some work she did on a stand of holly bushes at Lydd Ranges, Dungeness in the early 1990s. If you have her contact details could you mind passing on this request on to her and ask her to contact me via my website

      Dear Brian
      Susyn is literally moving house today so she has asked me to send you her contact details in the post. I will do that today and hope that when she is a bit settled she will get in touch. Susyn doesn’t use email, so I have sent her your address and phone number as shown on your website.
      Regards, Gillian

    Hi, I was wondering if I might be able to use Gillian’s photograph of Steve Hickman from her March 2012 blog ‘Five Magic Beans’ to publicise Steve’s talk at our gardening club in March on our website?
    Regards, Iain
