Conserving the diversity of garden plants.

Welcome to Plant Heritage Guernsey.

We are proud to be affiliated to Plant Heritage in the UK.

Guernsey at heart

Here in Guernsey we have around 300 members who enjoy our annual programme of plant sales, lectures, garden visits and the well-established Nerine Festival.

We are keen to conserve plants that thrive or are linked with Guernsey and have several on-going projects.

Key projects

Our projects include an expanding nerine collection, which was designated a National Collection in 2017, 19thC clematis collections, pelargoniums and the collection of camellias planted at Government House.
We also have a collection of jovibarbas and are setting up a Caparne Iris collection.
Help is always required and very welcome.

Get involved

We send out a newsletter three times a year and have copies of the Plant Heritage Journal available to collect at our events.

Membership is only £12.00 a year (one or a couple) and many events are free. Why not join us today?

Our current projects

Currently there are six conservation projects:

The Nerine Collection

The 19thC Clematis Collections

The Camellia Collection at Government House

The Jovibarba Collection

The Pelargonium Collection

The setting up of a Caparne Iris Collection

We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning, Sunday, at the Giant Plant Sale. Sausmarez Manor, Fort Road, parking in the field opposite. We open at 10:00am, but there will be a queue before that. Here is a small selection of plants for sale.

These are Hydrangea 'Runaway Bride'. It can be grown successfully in a pot or in the ground and it is unusual as it has flowers all the way up the stem. It was RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year 2018.

This pelargonium is called Sweet Mimosa and will be available to buy at our Giant Plant Sale on Sunday 29th May.

Claire Cathcart will be chatting about the Giant Plant Sale to Tattie Thompson and Linda Fermont at about 12:40 tomorrow, Wednesday, 25th May. The Giant Plant Sale takes place on Sunday, 29th May at 10:00am at Sausmarez Manor, Fort Road.
