Dr John Grimshaw – ‘Paying Rent: Plants that Earn Their Keep’ 

Coming up: Saturday 20th March – 11.00am

Dr John Grimshaw – ‘Paying Rent: Plants that Earn Their Keep’ 

Note: With the restrictions still in place this talk will be via Zoom

John Grimshaw has enjoyed a varied and interesting career, including nine years restoring the Gardens at Colesbourne Park (famous for its snowdrops) before he became the Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum in 2012.  He is a respected gardener, author and botanist, and is Vice-Chair of the RHS Woody Plant Committee.  Fascinated by all plants, he has grown a huge diversity of them over the years. 

In this talk, John will introduce a range of plants of all kinds, chosen for their long or multiple seasons of interest in the garden.  Just the thing for those of us who want colour all year round in our borders.

  1. Dear Bill,

    Would you be able to give me an idea of the anticipated duration of this talk please?

    Will there be an opportunity, having bought a ticket, to watch a replay of the video?

    Kind regards, Sally
