Alert:

This course has been cancelled. Please register your interest and we will notify you of future courses of the same type.

Almost all of the plants we grow in our gardens and keep as houseplants are not native to the UK. So, who went hunting for these plants, where did they go and why, what adventures did they have, and why did they select the plants that they did? The topics discussed will include alpines, herbaceous plants, orchids and trees.
