Sidmouth Gardener’s Question Time event
Gardening experts on had at Rotary’s Gardener’s Question Time
TOP gardeners will be on hand to answer questions at a Gardener’s Question Time organised by Sid Valley Rotary Club.
“It is not very often that you find a group of experts available and willing to answer the many complex questions posed by knowledgeable gardeners,” said James Trevett of Sidmouth Garden Centre, who is hosting the event at the garden centre from 7pm on Thursday, April 19.
The panel of experts for this second GQT organised by Rotarians, come from Devon and Dorset.
Leading the panel will be Toby Buckland, who presented the BBC 2’s flagship gardening programme Gardener’s World for two years. Toby won the 2008 Royal Horticulture Association’s Gold award and Best in Show for his ‘Ethical Garden’ in the Gardener’s World Live show, and has recently launched an online plant nursery.
