How you can help following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
During these unprecedented times, our initial focus was on helping those who suddenly found themselves in a difficult position and ensuring that we got the information out to everyone in the industry. We also sadly needed to cancel or postpone all our fundraising events planned for what is usually our busiest time of the year for garden tours and flower shows which is why our fundraising income has taken a sudden dive, just at the time when demand for our help has increased hugely.
With the reduction in plant sales at a critical time of the year and the reduction in wages for many in our industry we’re expecting the demands on our services teams to continue to grow over the rest of the year, and into next. So, we’re asking you to please, do what you can to help us – join in with our HORTAID-20 campaign.
The quickest and simplest way you can help is by donating via our online shop, our JustGiving page, or by sending a cheque made payable to ‘Perennial’ to 115-117 Kingston Road, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 7SU.

Our President of Perennial Alan Titchmarsh MBE says:
“In the current crisis, the need for Perennial’s help has never been greater. It really is a life-saver for gardeners and all people in horticulture who are in need of support, and our current work is making a vital difference to so many in these life-threatening times. Please do whatever you can to help the men and women who have devoted their lives to making our landscape a better place”.
