Local Group

Primula 'Captain Blood'

Plant Heritage North East (PHNE) is a friendly, sociable horticultural group,
where you will find a wealth of knowledge about garden plants of all kinds. Our
group hosts monthly talks from October to May in St Mary’s Parish Centre in
Ponteland, and has a varied programme of events and visits throughout the year,
including plant sales and fairs in the summer months. See our Events page for details.

Events normally include two Plant Fairs at interesting venues, to which we invite an additional range of local nurseries, and stalls selling PHNE members’ plants at events around the county, plus occasional trips to gardens and nurseries, and an annual garden party.

We also run an active Plant Propagation Group, and our members participate in the Plant Heritage Plant Exchange.

   Newsletters and Bulletins

The Plant Heritage North East Journal, packed with news, articles, reviews and pictures, is published electronically in Spring and Autumn, and our Chairman sends out a monthly update bulletin by email.
