Gardening Talks - Three fascinating talks packed full of top tips and wonderful anecdotes, and with a splash of local history thrown in guaranteed to be enjoyed by everyone, from budding new gardeners to fully fledged green fingered enthusiasts, and also those who simply enjoy the beauty of a garden.

Many plants have a story... Here Samantha Hopes shares 25 of the most interesting that she has come across so far. From tales of where the plants were collected and how they are pollinated, to folk law and old wives tales, this fascinating talk is sure to intrigue!

Samantha Hopes initially trained and worked as a Geologist but soon became distracted by the plants growing on and around the rocks. In pursuit of this growing interest, she re-trained, studying at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Pershore College and the RHS Garden Wisley, where she specialised in rock and alpine plants. She also worked for short stints at Kew and Great Dixter, and after graduating went to work alongside John Massey, looking after his Hepatica collection at Ashwood Nurseries. She now propagates and grows a range of unusual plants in her own garden, which she sells at talks.
