PlantNetwork is a charity and membership organisation that provides training and network support to gardens and gardeners throughout Britain and Ireland.

Through its work, PlantNetwork contributes to maintaining and developing the horticultural and plant conservation skills for which our gardens are renowned. The goals of PlantNetwork are:

  • Supporting gardens and plant collections for conservation, knowledge and enjoyment.
  • Providing networking and professional development for the plant network community.

Since being formed in 1996, PlantNetwork has brought together both institutional and private members and now represents over 300 gardens including all the major public horticultural and botanic gardens in the countries.

If you work in gardens, from botanic gardens and arboreta to public parks; have a professional interest in amenity or botanical horticulture; manage or care for a documented plant collection; or wish to learn more about gardening in the gardens of Britain and Ireland, then membership of PlantNetwork is for you
