The Cornwall Garden Society (CGS) launches its annual series of lectures in October with two talks by passionate plant explorer and rock gardener, Harry Jans who is a founder member of the Dutch Rock Garden Society of which he has been President for the last six years. In 2014, he received the prestigious Alpine Garden Society (AGS) Lyttel Trophy, the highest AGS award for individuals who have made a substantial contribution to the knowledge of alpine plants. His website contains more than 16000 photographs taken during his travels around the globe.
Around the World with Alpine Plants will be his subject on Tuesday 10th October at 7.30pm at the Alverton Hotel in Truro (straight after the AGM at 7pm), whilst Flowers of the Incas will be his focus on Wednesday 11th October at 2.30pm at the Penventon Park Hotel in Redruth.
These lectures are free for CGS members. Non-members are welcome to attend to find out more about the Society and donations are gratefully received.
