A Special Event held by the Norfolk and Norwich Horticultural Society (NNHS) with a presentation by Adrian Bloom, President of the Society, followed by a Forum with a panel of wide ranging experience to discuss the present and future of gardening and horticulture.
LOOKING BACK: THE FOGGY BOTTOM STORY
Adrian Bloom is presenting in a talk some of his own experiences in creating Foggy Bottom, his own 50 year old 6 acre garden, now renowned for year round colour, and featured in books and on many television programmes over the years. Since the garden began in 1967, Adrian has been ‘on trend’ with innovative plantings of conifers and heathers, ornamental grasses and perennials, plant combinations and rivers, as well as the always in vogue container grown plants.
The Smaller garden: since 1975, Adrian has always championed the average gardener with a smaller garden, and his talk will include some that he has designed in the UK, the USA and Canada – and “Given Away”. Many of these are shown in his books and on TV.
It’s all about the plants and how you put them together. Adrian’s talk will also highlight some of the most reliable plants and will give recommendations, as well as plants for containers.
How much does it cost?
Places at the talk cost £10 per person, including welcome drinks and an opportunity to engage with local gardening organisations before the talk.
