Description

Perennial is the national charity for those who work or have worked in horticulture and their spouses/ partners when they face adversity
or need.
Our history is rooted in the 19th Century, but the charity has moved with the times as both horticulture and the needs of its people have changed. Perennial helps by providing money and services, and by ensuring people get the help they need from government departments, public and private organisations that are there to assist.


Company description
Perennial's vision is to be the automatic first port of call in times of need for all those who are working in, have worked in or retired fromhorticulture.

When someone turns to us for help, we tailor our services to meet the needs of that individual. We always respect our clients and value their right to choice.
Perennial was founded in 1839, as an early secular caring charity. An Annual Dinner became the focus of fundraising and in 1852 Charles Dickens became one of the first of numerous "celebrities" who have added their weight to the task of attracting support. His powerful speech drew attention to the circumstances of the gardener at the end of his working life:

"...His gains are not great and knows gold and silver more as being the colours of fruit and flowers than by their presence in his pockets. He is subjected to that kind of labour which renders him peculiarly liable to infirmity and when old age comes upon him, the gardener is, of all men perhaps, best able to appreciate the benefits of the Institution..."

For a hundred years we continued to operate both as a pension fund subscribed by employees - typically head gardeners - and as a charity drawing donations from the great and the good - royalty and aristocracy owning big gardens employing large staffs.
