ADVANCE NOTICE: PlantNetwork Conference 2019


The PlantNetwork Conference 2019 will take place on 8th-9th May 2019 at Abbotsbury Subtropical Garden, Dorset.

The theme is climate change and gardening, adapting our gardens to rising temperatures, changing rainfall patterns and increasingly extreme weather events.

The conference will include four broad sessions:

  • climate predictions and changes relevant to horticulturists;
  • changing planting choices;
  • building resilience in gardens; and,
  • plant issues: health and management.

If you’re interested in speaking at the conference, please complete the conference submission/proposal  form or contact the PlantNetwork Coordinator to discuss informally.

A programme will be launched in January 2019 with speakers announced shortly thereafter.
