Threatened Plant of the Year Competition 2023

1st February, 2023

Plant Heritage’s annual Threatened Plant of the Year competition is now open, with the winner to be announced at RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival 

Each year we ask anyone with a love of gardening, plants and flowers to search their own green spaces for any hidden gems that could become 2023’s winner.   

Anyone can enter (you don’t need to be a National Plant Collection® Holder or Plant Heritage member) but all plants submitted must be a named cultivar that have been grown or sold in the UK or Ireland before 2013.   

Those interested have until 14th May 2023 to submit their entries, before they’re shortlisted by an expert panel from Plant Heritage. All shortlisted plants (or photos) will be on display at RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival (4-9th July 2023), before the overall winner is crowned and is presented with an engraved Threatened Plant of the Year 2023 winner’s vase, certificate and special plant label.
