Plants of interest

Heritage Lottery Funded

A new volunteer group, 'The Friends of Highdown Research Volunteers', was formed as part of the project 'Understanding Highdown Gardens: Interpretation and Heritage', which was made possible by funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

The group researched the history and plants of Highdown Gardens, and have produced a number of plant profiles of key plants in our National Collection so you can discover a little more about them, when they are in season, their history in the Gardens and where they came from. The profiles can be found below.

Many thanks to all the volunteers involved.

In the video below, we join Annelise to learn all about her new role and see some examples of the precious plants she'll be preserving for many years to come at Worthing's world-famous gardens ...
