The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
TWiG/Gardening Soc: January 2017
Mark your diaries for 'Mark'. That is, get online and book your seats for tonight's talk by Dr Mark Spencer. Tickets have been flying off the shelf so please ensure that you book your ticket(s) to avoid disappointment — we have sold over 75 tickets already! A reminder to all that this is an all ticketed event.
Tattenhall Wildlife Group (TWiG) and Tattenhall Gardening Society (TGS) are jointly hosting this rising star of the Natural History Museum, who will talk on the theme of 'Plant Hunting and Plant Hunters in the 17th and 18th Centuries'. Come with your tickets (see below) to the Barbour Institute in time for the 19.45pm start.
Mark is Senior Curator of the Botany Department at the Museum, and has headed projects such as cataloguing all the plants that grow in The Scillies. Tresco Abbey Gardens may be the star attraction to gardeners, only possible because of the earlier work of intrepid plant hunters, but there is far more to the flowers on the islands than the seemingly omnipresent agapanthus plants. Maybe Mark will have a chance to touch on this as well as telling us more about his section's historical interests. You can get a taster of his background and broader interests via this link:
