Booking open: Gardening in 2046


02 December 2021, online, FREE to all

Gardening in 2046 is the final session of the PlantNetwork Conference 2021: The Modern Garden but is also a stand-alone event – you do not need to attend the conference to take part. It is a FREE session and open to everyone interested in the future of horticulture.

Have you ever wondered what gardens and gardening might be like in 25 years time? The session will start with a series of lightning talks – short presentations on a series of topics related to the future of gardening – providing an opportunity to hear from a range of speakers. Following these short talks, there will be a panel discussion. The panel will discuss their perspectives on what the future might look like  – from the planting we will be using to management approaches. You’ll have an opportunity to ask the panel any questions you might have about ‘Gardening in 2046’!

The session chair is Philip Turvil, Eco Business Director of the Field Studies Council and panelists are Mark Brent (Curator of Oxford Botanic Garden), Kirsty Wilson (of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and presenter on BBC’s The Beechgrove Garden) and Cailean Ian Stewart (from the Royal Horticultural Society and finalist in the Young Horticulturist of the Year 2021 competition).
