Our first meeting of the 2016/17 season was truly fascinating. Sophie Leguil, the Plant Heritage Plant Conservation Officer, travelled all the way from her home in northern France to talk to us about
Welcome to Plant Heritage North East
PHNE is one of the largest branches of Plant Heritage (more formally known as the National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens), which is the world’s leading cultivated plant conservation charity. We are also a friendly, sociable horticultural society, where you will find a wealth of knowledge about garden plants of all kinds.
Plant Heritage's main mission is to encourage the conservation of cultivated plants in the British Isles, whilst at the same time educating and providing as much enjoyment as possible for its members and the gardening public. To find out more about our conservation work, have a look at our National Plant Collections and the Threatened Plants Project. And even if you only have room for a single plant, you can still get involved via the Plant Guardians scheme. We also have regular monthly meetings and a varied programme of events and visits throughout the year, including two plant fairs, trips to gardens and nurseries and an annual garden party.
