Talk

'Cultivation of Temperate Aroids' by Kit Strange


A repeat visit to talk to us about another group of bulbous plants.

Kit Strange, alpine horticulturalist at Kew Gardens for 17 years, specialises in bulbous plants. Kit is from Denmark but has lived in the UK since 1990. She gave us an excellent talk on ‘Bulbs of Kyrgyzstan’ back in 2009 and we decided that it was time to invite her back. 

Kit has travelled widely looking at plants in the wild and has collected seeds for the millennium seed bank. She has also been working closely with colleagues in the Falkland Islands to conserve and propagate native species. (Brought forward from 2019)
