'Woody plants that should be better known and grown' by Jack Aldridge

With more trees and shrubs available to us now as gardeners than ever before, it is inevitable that some excellent garden-worthy plants are overlooked for more popular favourites. 

Many exciting 'rare' plants are only rare for the reason that they haven't yet become well-known, or have been forgotten about. This illustrated talk highlights a plantsman's selection of interesting and idiosyncratic woody plants that are worth every effort to hunt down and make space for in any garden!

Jack Aldridge is a horticulturist, plantsman and writer. When not gardening day-to-day at RHS Garden Wisley, his passion for plants has taken him around the country visiting plant collections and gardens, looking at and researching woody plants. He contributes to various publications and is an author for Trees & Shrubs Online. He is also a trustee for White House Farm Arboretum in Kent, created by friend and mentor Maurice Foster VMH, and currently visits twice monthly to catalogue and label the incredible plant collection there.

This talk is a Plant Heritage Hampshire Group event
