Guernsey Group


We have a varied programme of events each year including plant sales, lectures, garden visits and our Annual Nerine Festival.

The Guernsey group has several ongoing projects including:

A National Collection of nerines – the island is the home of the Guernsey Lily – Nerine sarniensis

Period clematis planted in Candie Gardens and some 100 varieties of the most vulnerable cultivars kept in the PHG glasshouse. 

A small collection of Caparne irises, based on William John Caparne's "Intermediate Bearded Irises" introduced to Guernsey between 1898 and 1904.

We have also recorded the location and varieties of Camellias planted in Candie, Saumarez Park, and in the grounds of Sausmarez Manor – all open to the public.
