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 has monthly meetings and a varied programme of events and visits throughout the year.



Events include two plant fairs, trips to gardens and nurseries and an annual garden party.

We also run an active Plant Propagation Group and our members participate in the Annual Plant Exchange

The North East Group will be welcoming members around the country to Plant Heritage's Annual General Meeting on Friday 24th April, 2020, in Durham.
