Betula identification and cultivation

Held at Ness Botanic Gardens in September 2018, this Tree Forum Day was led by Ness Botanic Gardens staff and focused primarily on the identification of birches and their allies, with discussion of propagation, cultivation and Betula conservation.


Assessing and developing a Spirit of Place document for your garden

Staff representing a range of 10 gardens attended this training day at the National Trust garden Nymans on the 12th July 2018. Presentations and discussions focussed on the purpose and contents of plans such as conservation Management Plans, garden Management Plans, Statements of Significance and Spirit of Place documents. Stephen Herrington Head gardener at Nymans led a tour of Nymans explaining how the planing process, including Spirit of Place, had led to decision making at Nymans Gardens.
