Friends of the Harris Garden evening talk

The orchid hunter: A summer in search of our tresses and twayblades

Leif Bersweden spent the summer of his gap year in 2013 hunting down all 52 species of orchid native to Britain and Ireland. He introduces his book, The Orchid Hunter, which tells the tale of this quest. As he travels all over the country, Leif teaches us about some of our most extraordinary native plants, the history of orchid hunting in Britain as well as sharing stories about growing up to love plants.

Admission free for members of £1 for guests. Booking advisable.
