Andrew Ward – 'Gardening in a Changing Climate'
Time & Location
About the Event
Andrew trained as a plant breeder and started Norwell Nurseries and Gardens 24 years ago with his wife Helen. The garden holds over 2,500 different varieties of plants and has featured in many magazines and is included in the prestigious publication 'Great Gardens to Visit'. They hold the national collection of Astrantias. Andrew lectures widely and has given key note talks to the national body of the The Hardy Plant Society.
This talk looks at the consequences of global warming and at beautiful, interesting and more unusual plants that are amenable to the weather extremes of heat drought and wet. Plants that exhibit a willingness to survive and even thrive under tricky conditions will become increasingly important, but that doesn't mean we have to rely on boring Hypericums and Geranium Johnson's Blue!
