Welcome to IPPS Europe

IPPS, the global network for nursery growers and other pro­fessional horticulturists, started in North America in the 1950s and has had a regional branch in Europe since 1968 when the Great Britain and Ireland Region began. A Scandinavian Region followed in 1992. The two later merged, and became IPPS European Region in 2014. We have members now in most European countries.

IPPS members agree to freely share their knowledge, skills and expertise for the benefit of our profession and we do this through our regular programme of technical skills workshops, visits to members’ nurseries and other horticultural establishments, our annual technical conference and, increasingly, through social media.


Our international network puts you in touch with like-minded people working in plant production, research, botanic gardens and education in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Southern Africa and North America; and our unique archive of technical presentations at conferences in all our regional branches, going back more than 50 years, is available to all members.

Find out more on these pages about how you could benefit from sharing – and contributing to – this vast pool of horticultural expertise.

We invite you to join IPPS online now
