I have been a horticultural speaker since the last century. And I travel all around the M25 giving talks to many different groups who get together in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. Also lunch and supper clubs.
I have run my nursery even longer, growing and selling plants via mail order, some shows and at the talks. I really enjoy giving talks. My style is in formative and light-hearted. I like to encourage all things horticultural with humour.
Herewith below an updated list of my talks for your groups consideration:
At the Nursery – what goes on in & out of a traditional nursery
Asters (Symphyotrichums) — history & propagation
Botanically Speaking — Greek & Latin plant names explained
Botanist or Not? – plant origins, history & cultivation
Brussel sprouts to Tangerines — Christmas fruit & vegetable stories
Film & Television plants – a delight of flora on the big & small screen
Hardy Geraniums — history & propagation
Herbs — culinary, cultivation & folklore
I am a Tulip what are you? — plants with people’s names & terms of endearment
Nat/Bot Quiz — natural history & botanical quiz
Nuts — cultivation & history of Nuts from around the world
Roses — all about Roses
Spices — a super spicy story
Sugar — cultivation & history
The history of the Victoria sponge cake — history & ingredient facts
Water — how I got a water connection to a field in the middle of nowhere.
In the majority of the talks I bring plants for propagation and reference. And for all the talks I bring plants to sell and donate to the raffle.
Also I am available at short notice.
If invited I will travel anywhere in Great Britain or around the world.
Hopefully there is something here that appeals to you and your members.
