Why support us?

Scadoxus puniceus

Your support (no matter how small) will make a huge difference.

Plant Heritage carries out vital work in the United Kingdom. Plants are essential for all life on earth and yet two-thirds of our cultivated plants are threatened with extinction and we need your help in continuing our work.

Your gift would help fund our National Plant Collections® scheme, which is at the heart of the conservation work we do, creating individual living libraries of cultivated plants across the country.

There are 650 National Plant Collections and we aim to register many more plant groups to protect our plant diversity, for people to enjoy today and tomorrow.

Monies raised will also:

  • fund the Plant Guardian scheme which enables members to register the threatened or rare plants in their own garden
  • fund a volunteer to visit and assess a new Collection for the scheme
  • fund training workshops to update Collection Holders on plant related topics including research, taking herbarium specimens and micropropagation
  • fund access to an online Plant Reference Library for Collection Holder research

We are grateful for all donations to support our work: no matter what size donation, every contribution makes a real difference to us. Thank you.
