WELCOME TO PLANT HERITAGE GUERNSEY

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.
