Plant Heritage Horticultural conservation charity Plant Heritage has accredited a new hosta National Plant Collection in Worcestershire. These include collections that have been handed down from previous collection holders to the younger generation, and a further seven located in all corners of the country, including the UK’s first Alcea (Hollyhock) National Plant Collection in Lincolnshire.

Benjamin Matthews has collected hostas in Worcestershire for the last 20 years, having loved them from childhood. Upon meeting Una Dunnett, who lived just two miles away and had a collection of British hostas, he began helping her in her garden. Last year Benjamin took on Una’s collection, and as a result he now has a growing collection, specialising in British hybridised introductions.
