Plant Heritage was honoured to receive a Gold medal for their educational display at the RHS Chatsworth Show 2019.

This medal is testament to the quality of plants provided by Collection Holders and our Plant Guardians, and to the great team work with the Collection holders and Plant Heritage volunteers.

See our previous news item for more details.

The BBC inlcuded the Peperomia Collection in their coverage of the show showing the passion of Collection Holder Sally Williams, and the knowledge she has gained whilst collectin this fascinating genus.The seed dispersal of the Lithops collection was also highlighted.

As a charity we are keen to portray our work, to illustrate the diversity of plants, the range of plant groups, and the invaluable work our Collection Holders and Plant Guardians do in conserving our garden plants. The more we can help enthuse people to grow, share and save plants then the more plants we can save. There is something for everyone with plants!

Our next show is at RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival - look out for us in the Floral Marquee.
