Plant Heritage Threatened Plant of the Year 2020 will be awarded virtually in August this year

We are delighted to announce a new Threatened Plant of the Year competition 2020.

At Plant Heritage we are keen to showcase rare and unusual plants so this competition is the perfect place to highlight these plants. Key details are noted below:
