The Cornwall Garden Society’s February Lectures will be delivered by award-winning nurseryman, Rosy Hardy, who has grown herbaceous perennials commercially for the past 30 years. With 23 RHS Chelsea Golds to her credit, she is the Royal Horticultural Society’s most successful female floral exhibitor.
Rosy is also a Gold medal-winning garden designer at RHS Hampton Court and was awarded an RHS Chelsea Silver for her Brewin Dolphin Forever Freefolk garden in 2016.
Beautiful herbaceous borders are the inspiration for her designs into which she has introduced new varieties such as Gaura Rosyjane, Gaura Freefolk Rosy and Gaura Ice Cool Rosy.
When not staging show-stopping displays and appearing on TV, Rosy is busy growing at the Hampshire nursery she runs with her husband, Robert. Her love of what she does keeps her at the top of her game.
Spring Flowering Perennials will be her subject on Tuesday 12th February at 7.30pm at the Alverton in Truro, whilst Right Plant, Right Place will be her focus on Wednesday 13th January 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.
A local nursery will be on hand to tempt attendees with high quality plants for sale.
