Booking open for Plant Records training day and Mount Stuart visit

Credit: Mount Stuart Gardens

Wednesday 3rd May to Thursday 4th May 2017

Every now and again we get an opportunity to visit a garden that many of us would not get around to visiting. Don Murray, PlantNetwork Board member and Head of Landscapes and Horticulture at Mount Stuart has invited us to the island for our next Plant Records meeting.

The Plant Records Forum is one of our most successful groups and each year we build upon our understanding of minimum data requirements, data quality, risks and processes. We will be able to discuss how we all us use our plant records, common issues and compare notes on different systems.  If you have experiences  to share or questions to put on these themes please get in touch.
