Heather Society

The Heather Society extends a very warm welcome to everyone entering the world of heathers, especially to newcomers who have recently developed an interest in these attractive shrubs. The Society covers every aspect of this world, from the wild heathers of European heaths and moorlands to the rare and unusual splendours of South African or “Cape” heaths, from everyday cultivation, including choosing, growing and propagating hardy heathers, to scientific studies and nomenclature.

The ‘Heather Society'(HS) was formed in 2021 after the closure of  ‘The Heather Society’ (THS) as a charity which was originally formed in 1963.

The new society is a donatations-based, not-for-profit organisation, aiming to publish newsletters and promote heathers as garden plants.
