Join Dan Hinkley, Director Emeritus of Heronswood Garden, as he uses many of his collection trips over the past three decades to illustrate why ‘plant hunting’ is so important. From a bag of seed to a mature plant ready to site in the garden, Hinkley will discuss the necessary protocols for a successful expedition.
