Plant Heritage

Plant Heritage is a small independent charity based in Surrey but operating throughout the UK and Ireland with the support of a large network of volunteers and supporters.  Established in 1978 as a response to concerns about loss of plant diversity, we are the only UK charity to focus on the conservation of garden plants.  Changes in fashion or in the horticultural trade can rapidly imperil these plants – once it’s gone, it’s gone!

We record, research, and preserve garden plants through the National Plant Collection Scheme, our Plant Guardians, and our local group network and Plant Exchanges.
