Devon

Welcome to Devon Group’s pages. We are one of the largest and most active Plant Heritage groups in the UK.  We run an extensive programme of events and specialist Plant Fairs – these include visits to Devon’s magnificent country estates and gardens, exclusive visits to private gardens large and small, and informative talks and workshops.

 

We also take part in the annual Plant Exchange,  a practical way that our members can become involved in plant conservation. 

Devon is also the home of more than 40 very diverse National Collections – from Agapanthus to Betula – of which we are justifiably proud. Some of these are held in private gardens, others in specialist nurseries or the Gardens at RHS Rosemoor, Paignton Zoo and Exeter University. 

Over the coming months we will be sharing news and information with our members through these pages and also by paper and electronic communication. 

If you would like to receive information by e-mail and we do not yet have your e-mail address please do message our Group  - see contact button below.
