October Conservation Feature

Annual Meeting and Plant Exchange

Local Group Conservation Coordinators gathered for the annual meeting at Bubbenhall near Coventry on 29th September, bringing with them about 250 plants for the Exchange. This was a wonderful effort from growers all round the country who managed to raise so many plants in spite of the long hot, dry summer. There was lively discussion about the plants in the Conservation Scheme, before Hampshire Coordinators presented their four new introductions with another from Essex Group. These will be featured over the coming months.

The Scheme is still looking for a National Coordinator and quite a few Local Groups are not represented. Information about the Scheme and the plants we grow can be found by following the About Plants / Conservation link from the home screen. If you enjoy growing and propagating plants and would like to be involved then please get in touch (conservation@hardy-plant.org.uk)
