Magnolia 'Genie'


In the Yorkshire group area we are proud to support forty one National Plant Collections, held by nine institutions and public gardens, three nurseries and five individuals. We also offer a regular programme of events including Spring and Autumn Plant Fairs: please read on to find out more.

  • We organise regular specialist Plant Fairs at RHS Harlow Carr in both Spring and Autumn.
  • We also have displays at the Harrogate Flower Shows, recently being awarded Gold medals for our displays.
  • Members are encouraged to take part in the National Plant Exchange, become Plant Guardians and to donate spare seed to the seed exchange.
  • New members are always welcome, and helpers are always needed at our events.
