UK: National Plant Collection to preserve chrysanthemums
Previously Plant Heritage has mainly awarded Collections looked after by one National Collection Holder in one place, but the new Collection Holder of Chrysanthemum (Hardy) Judy Barker has joined forces with two recognised partners, Hill Close Gardens (Warwick) and Dr Andrew Ward of Norwell Nurseries (Newark). The new partnership will mean a stronger position for the current and future conservation of hardy chrysanthemums with displays now open to the public in three locations across three counties.
Judy started the Collection of Korean, Rubellum and hardy spray chrysanthemums at her allotment in Hertfordshire over 12 years ago. Over the years, Judy has maintained the Collection on her own despite recent winter floods and having had surgery on both her hips.
Judy said, “I am so pleased to have extended the holding of my National Plant Collection with Norwell Nurseries and Hill Close Gardens. Chrysanthemums are wonderfully, versatile plants with deep intense colours and scents. They are also easy to grow, many survive colder winters and they provide essential support for insects”.
Plant Heritage CEO Sarah Quarterman said, “We are delighted to announce this first new National Plant Collection partnership of hardy chrysanthemums across the three counties of Hertfordshire, Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire.
