Hardy Plant Study Weekend

The Victoria Hardy Plant Group is hosting a Study Weekend next June in Sidney, BC. 

From the promotional material: 

The Victoria Hardy Plant Group is thrilled to be hosting the Hardy Plant Study Weekend in Sidney, BC next summer, June 23-25, 2017.

What is a Hardy Plant Study Weekend? It is a three to four day conference that rotates among the Hardy Plant Groups in the Pacific Northwest, including the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon in Portland, Northwest Perennial Alliance in Seattle and the Hardy Plant Groups of Vancouver and Victoria.

All gardeners are invited to join us for total immersion in the wonderful world of gardening. It’s your chance to indulge your passion for everything gardening. We will be offering the opportunity to see and hear international and national speakers, tour local gardens open especially for this event, shop for plants, garden art, and beautiful books. We are also planning a Saturday evening fete at The Gardens at HCP.

The theme for the 2017 Hardy Plant Study Weekend is Flourish: Celebrating People, Plants and Progress. It will be held at the popular Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney.

The Study Weekends are very popular, most conferences sell out in less than a month after registration began. 

The keynote speakers are Joe Swift and James Alexander-Sinclair from BBC Gardeners’ World. Read more about them here   

We are updating our website regularly so check often to find the latest news.

Registration begins February 1, 2017. Mark your calendar now!
