Welcome to our Group Page. We are an enthusiastic group of people who are passionate about plants.  We support the 24 National Plant Collections in Sussex, including the group's own dispersed collection of Narcissus cultivars introduced by Noel Burr

Members of the Sussex Group participate in the Plant Guardian Scheme and the Annual Plant Exchange, sharing and receiving interesting and rare plants.

We hold an Annual Lecture on a topic of horticultural interest and our members help with Plant Heritage's displays at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.

 

The group publishes it's own newsletter, with many interesting contributions - you can read our most recent one here.

We are always keen to welcome new members to the group - please do get in touch with our Membership Secretary (details below).
