Dr Ken Thompson – ‘More Modern Gardening Myths’
Dr. Thompson has been a senior lecturer in Plant Ecology at Sheffield University for over 20 years. He has written widely on the subject of science in gardening and acted as a consultant to many horticultural bodies, including the RHS. Ken will be familiar to many of you from his column in the Saturday Telegraph Gardening section and from his books such as ‘Where do Camels Belong?’, a fascinating study of “alien” species. This talk will challenge conventional gardening lore via some of Ken’s remarkable observations, and offer some genuinely useful practical advice.
