Patagonian Plants in Our Gardens - also via ZOOM
Talk by Dr Keith Ferguson
From Monkey Puzzles to Alstroemeria there are many plants from Patagonian Chile and Argentina we know and grow in our gardens. Shrubs include Buddleja globosa and Fuchsia magellanica, while Oenothera stricta, Lobelia tupa, and Oxalis adenophylla are just a few of the many herbaceous plants from the region. The talk will focus on the plants we cultivate but these will be shown in their natural surroundings together with images of the striking scene.
Keith trained as a professional botanist, worked in the USA for a period and then spent 29 years at RBG Kew, retiring as Deputy Keeper of the Herbarium and Head of the Pollen Unit there. He and his wife moved to Gloucestershire in 1996 and since retirement have created a new garden at their home in Longhope.
