We are the Victoria Hardy Plant Group, study group of the Victoria Horticultural Society. We are a group of keen plant enthusiasts and we’re excited to be hosting the 2017 Study Weekend in beautiful Victoria BC on Vancouver Island.
The island was named the top island destination in North America and one of the top 10 islands in the world by Travel and Leisure magazine. It was also awarded the prestigious ‘2015 International Garden Destination of the Year’ by the International Garden Tourism Network.

It is hosted annually in June by: The Northwest Perennial Alliance in Seattle (Bellevue), the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon in Portland OR, the Willamette Valley Hardy Plant Group in Eugene OR, the Hardy Plant Group of Vancouver BC and the Hardy Plant Group if Victoria (Sidney) BC.
