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

Iberis sempervirens, which has the common name Candytuft, is just coming into flower. It likes a dry spot and is best in full sun. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #candytuft

The daffodils in Churchill Avenue. I am not so keen on the wobbly lines of crocus, but they are in a good cause 'Purple for Polio' organised by the Rotary Club. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #daffodils

Honesty flowers for months at this time of year. It is well worth getting a plant in your garden and then let it seed itself. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #honesty

The huge magnolia in Lower Candie Gardens is out already. I couldn’t manage a blue sky, but you need to see it before the really strong winds on Thursday. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #magnolia

The moss in the woods at Le Vallon, which will serve as a pretty background ground-cover for the Guernsey bluebells in a few months time. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #moss
