NCCPG · National Council for the Conservation of Plants & Gardens

The National Council for the Conservation of Plants & Gardens (NCCPG), also known as plant Heritage, is a botanical conservation organization in the United Kingdom and a registered charity. It was founded in 1978 to combine the talents of botanists, horticulturalists and conservationists with the dedication of keen amateur and professional gardeners. The mission statement of the organization declares that "The NCCPG seeks to conserve, document, promote and make available Britain and Ireland's rich biodiversity of garden plants for the benefit of everyone through horticulture, education and science." Specifically, the aims of the organization are to:

• encourage the propagation and conservation of endangered garden plants in the British Isles, both species and cultivars;
• encourage and conduct research into cultivated plants, their origins, their historical and cultural importance and their environments; and
• encourage the education of the public in garden plant conservation.

Through its membership and the National plant Collection Holders, the NCCPG seeks to rediscover and reintroduce endangered garden plants by encouraging their propagation and distribution so that they are grown as widely as possible. The NCCPG works closely with other conservation bodies as well as botanic gardens, the National Trust, the National Trust for Scotland, English Heritage, the Royal Horticultural Society and many specialist horticultural societies.

The NCCPG's patron is HRH The Prince of Wales.
