The Cheshire Group meets on the last Wednesday of each month from September to April at the Toft Cricket Club, Knutsford (WA16 8QP) which can be found on the Chelford Road (A 537) out of Knutsford.
We have a variety of visiting speakers: Collection Holders, Head Gardeners, Nurserymen etc. Many bring plants for sale. Details of talks for 2015 can be found on our website 'http://www.cheshireplantheritage.co.uk/'.
In the summer occasional visits to Gardens are arranged. In addition, there are two major acitivities organized by the Group.
The first is the Rare Plant Fair which will be held at Rode Hall, Scholar Green, in May 2015
The other is preparing a display for the RHS Tatton Show in July.
In 2014 we were awarded a Silver Gilt Medal, having won 2 Golds and a Silver Gilt at the Show in the previous 4 years.
This is an important 'shop window' for Plant Heritage and the National Collection Holders, as the display principally consists of plants from National Collections.
The Cheshire Group also sells plants, grown by its members, at the Show. In addition, we participate in the Arley Hall Spring Plant Fair in April and the Summer Garden Festival in June.
