Hardy Plant Society
Our group loves hardy perennials. We help each other to grow them better, to try different species and to exchange information about them.
The group warmly welcomes members and non-members to our monthly talks by local and national speakers held on Mondays at 7.30 p.m. at the Crooklands Hotel on the A65 near Junction 36 of the M6. We hold a number of other events including plant sales and garden visits.
Monthly Talks: fascinating talks on a range of subjects. Members free, visitors £3.00, free parking. Small plants and sundries are normally for sale and a raffle is held at each meeting.
