North East

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 normally hosts monthly talks in Ponteland and has a varied programme of events and visits throughout the year, but of course this has had to be abandoned during 2020-21, though we are managing to maintain a series of Zoom talks (see Events).

Events normally include a Members' Plant Sale, a Plant Fair to which we invite an additional range of local nurseries, 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.

We also publish one print newsletter and one bulletin each year.

Plant Heritage had to cancel the 2020 Annual General Meeting which was to have been hosted by the North East Group in Durham, and sadly PH has decided that the 2021 AGM will again be a virtual meeting.
