(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)
Kirsty Wilson is the Garden Manager at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and presenter on BBC TV’s Beechgrove and appears on BBC Radio 4 Gardeners Question Time.
By re-imagining how we plan and use our gardens, we can all do our bit to support local wildlife, improve our health and help tackle the climate crisis. Positive steps, no matter how small, can really make a difference.
Kirsty’s book Planting With Nature aims to support anyone who wants to boost nature in their patch and help make the world a little greener. This practical, easy guide has specially commissioned illustrations by illustrator Hazel France, and contains essential information on many topics, from planting nectar-rich borders, native hedgerows, trees and wildflower meadows to creating rain gardens, green roofs and ponds.
Expert advice is also provided on sustainable gardening approaches to fruit and vegetable production, making compost and the propagation of new plants.
‘Full of sound advice and excellent ideas’ Jim McColl MBE, former presenter, BBC TV’s Beechgrove
