HARDY PLANT SOCIETY
HPS Diamond Jubilee
This year more members’ gardens than usual are open, to celebrate National's 60th anniversary. Each garden owner has chosen when they would like to open, so that their garden can be seen at its peak and ‘star’ plants can be at their best.
There is an entry fee, similar to that charged for the National Gardens Scheme. Apart from £1 to cover administration costs, this goes either to charity or to the local HPS group.
HPS have produced a booklet with all the gardens listed in every area. We hold a large supply of them and will have them on display at all of our meetings and information stands throughout the year.
Two of our members have agreed to open their gardens under this scheme in June.
In addition Dorset Group will be welcoming the Hardy Plant Society President, Roy Lancaster, in October. He will be talking about his book, A Life of Plants, in the afternoon, then, in the evening, we shall be having a Jubilee Dinner at the Dudsbury Golf Club.
