Cancellation of Visit to National Collection Of Hepaticas Glenn Shapiro and North Cumbria Rock Garden Group Tuesday 17 March 2020

The following visit has been cancelled because the early spring means that the Hepaticas will be past their best by mid-March. However, your Committee is hoping to plan a visit there next year, and so we are thankful to The North Cumbria Rock GardenGroup for bringing Silverdale to our attention.


 Silverdale, in North Lancashire, holds The National Collection of Hepaticas.

Hepaticas have a cult following in Japan where some beautiful and very expensive plants originate.

Details of the collection, held by Glenn Shapiro, can be found at
