Cheviot Trees are one of Europe’s largest and most experienced producers of cell grown trees. Established for over 25 years, they grow a diverse range of trees, shrubs, conifers and wetland plants from a wide selection of seed sources.

We make a return visit to Pentland Plants, this time to visit their plant trials. Held every second year the trials are a spectacular sight of over 1,000 bedding and basket plants, show casing brand new and existing varieties from breeders all over the world.

This will be a joint meeting with the IPPS European Region.

All welcome, members and non-members. CPD certificates for attendance are available on request from your Branch Events Organiser
