Ornamental grasses expert shares planting ethos.
The Cornwall Garden Society’s (CGS) December lectures are by Neil Lucas, who is a recognised authority on ornamental grasses and the owner of Dorset-based Knoll Gardens.
Having developed his own planting ethos, based on the principles that work so successfully in nature, he established a charity in 2008 – The Knoll Gardens Foundation – to further test these principles and promote their benefits to the gardener, the garden and its wildlife.
Neil is a member of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Council and a senior RHS judge.
He has been awarded ten consecutive RHS Chelsea Gold medals and is also a published author.
Plants, Gardens and Wildlife: The Knoll Gardens Foundation will be his subject on Tuesday 6th December at 7.30pm at The Alverton in Truro.
This lecture is free for CGS members. Non-members are welcome to attend to find out more about the Society and donations are gratefully received.
The CGS is a charity that exists to encourage and improve the science, art and practice of horticulture in all its branches; share knowledge about gardening and Cornwall’s rich garden heritage, and conserve the county’s natural environment. The Society is affiliated to the RHS and has enjoyed the patronage of HRH The former Prince of Wales.
