Guests are welcome at our Hardy Plant Group meetings. There is a $5 Drop-In fee for guests, but we hope you enjoy the meeting and will consider becoming a member. We have excellent meeting programs including interesting speakers, plant auctions, plant raffles and a plant show and tell. We have a great group of volunteers who look after three beautiful “Hardy Borders” at the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, and we keep up-to-date with a monthly email newsletter, The Seedling. Best of all, we are a group of knowledgeable or keen to learn, approachable, fun-loving plant-aholics, and we’d love to have you join us.

Membership is $15 annually or $20 for more than one person at the same mailing address. You must also be a member of the Victoria Horticultural Society.


We meet seven times a year. During the winter months (February, March, October and November), we usually meet on the second Sunday of the month in the Couvelier Pavilion at the Gardens at HCP, 505 Quayle Road at 1:30 pm.  The remain meetings are generally the third Tuesday of the month at Knox Presbyterian Church, 2964 Richmond Rd. (April, May and September) at 7 pm.
