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, pelargoniums and the collection of camellias planted at Government House.
We are also 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 four conservation projects:

The Nerine Collection

The Camellia Collection at Government House

The Pelargonium Collection

The setting up of a Caparne Iris Collection

Some photos from the Floral Guernsey open garden yesterday afternoon at Les Fontenelles. The rose garden, the vegetable garden and part of the wild flower meadow. A magical place. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers

Nigella or Love-in-a-Mist has self-seeded in a relatively shady spot. I love the flowers and the seed pods, so although it is an annual, it is always in our garden. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #loveinamist #nigelladamascena

These Alliums are in the Les Cotils Peace Garden. If you look carefully you can see that the underside of the wooden staging has been boarded in and looks fine. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #allium
