Alpine Nurseries hosted our first Plant Talk for 2022 in their gorgeous autumn Trademart, on 25 May.
Collectable Plant and Species
Detailing why some horticulturalists and plant enthusiasts specialise in certain species or plant families and how these might be accommodated. Covering Orchid collections and indoor plants, ferneries and roses.
Presented by Ron Schuurman from Alpine Nurseries. Ron will also share information about his own Sarracenia collection!
Both designed to make it easier for everyone to garden responsibly, using positive engagement to encourage pro-environmental behaviour to reduce the risk of future landscape scale weed invasions, the ‘Certified Gardening Responsibly’ eco-label provides an easy way to identify, provide access to and increase demand for, low invasive risk ornamental garden plants.

Planting to mitigate climate extremes
Tig will be talking about designing landscape lay-out, plant selection and creating conditions which will mitigate the effect of climate change. With more extreme weather events predicted in the future we need to learn how to create the conditions and specify plants that will deliver effective remedy.
Presented by Tig Crowley from Tig Designs and Director of LDI
