We are a small team of plant lovers, administrating the charity from our offices at Stone Pine, accessible from Wisley village, adjacent to RHS Wisley Garden.


We handle membership enquiries, charm sponsors, administer the National Plant Collections and the Plant Guardian scheme, run the Threatened Plants Programme, write newsletters and Journals, run workshops, liaise with other conservation organisations, court the media, orchestrate the Plant Heritage zone at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, consolidate the accounts, and juggle a thousand other tasks.

We welcome volunteers! Please contact us if you would like to contribute your skills and enthusiasm to a worthy cause.
