Membership of the Dorset Group runs from 1st January to 31st December. However, if you should join us after the 1st October, you have membership until 31st December the following year. Our membership costs £5.00 single membership or £8.00 for joint membership, where both members live at the same address. All Dorset HPS members need to be members of the National Hardy Plant Society. If you would like to know more about what this entails, then follow the link to The Hardy Plant Society for more details.

So why not come and join us? Click on the link below to download a membership form for Dorset and send off with your cheque or Standing Order form completed to the address on it, or bring it along to the next Meeting.

We encourage all our members to pay by standing order if they can, as it reduces our operating costs and hence we can keep membership rates so low.
