Bulbs through the Year

Sunday 20 November 2016 14:30 - Sunday 20 November 2016 16:00

Bulbs are often thought of as just plants for spring - snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils but as bulbous plants occur worldwide across a range of different habitats nothing could be further from the truth!

This lecture looks at the different types of bulbous plants that can be grown outside in England and shows how they can be used to enhance the garden year-round.

About the speaker: Gardening botantist and writer John Grimshaw is the Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum, a joint project between Castle Howard and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He has been growing and studying a wide diversity of bulbs for over thirty years and is a noted galanthophile and croconut but prefers to be thought of as a daffodil enthusiast rather than a narcissist.
