Talk

'Two for the price of one!' by Dr Timothy Walker


Dr Timothy Walker on plants with at least two attractive features

We are delighted to welcome back Dr Timothy Walker whose popularity as a speaker is well deserved.  Timothy was the Director of the University of Oxford Botanic Garden from 1988 to 2014 (having started out as a trainee gardener in 1981) and is now a lecturer in Plant Sciences at Somerville College, Oxford.  In 2011 he presented a BBC4 series on the history of botany.  A well- travelled plant hunter, Timothy has particular interests in Euphorbias, Plant Conservation and explaining why plants are fascinating and important.

Plant Sales (before 2.15 pm) and raffle; teas, coffees & homemade cakes after meeting. Please do bring along any interesting seasonal plants that you'd like to show to the group. Donations of raffle prizes also much appreciated.  

Visitors very welcome.
