The New Zealand Alpine Garden Society invites you to their forthcoming Study Weekend, ?In From The Wild: from the Great Outdoors to our Gardens? to be held at Lincoln University, Christchurch, South Island, New Zealand from 1st to 3rd February 2013.
We extend a warm welcome to our two overseas guest speakers, HARRY JANS from the Netherlands and BOB WALLIS from Wales. Harry is well-known as a world traveller and top-class photographer and will be speaking about his travels and how some of the alpine plants he has seen grow in his garden at just 70 ft above sea level! Bob is an expert on bulbous plants, having travelled widely in Europe, Morocco, North America and the Middle East in search of bulbs. He and wife Rannveig maintain a large garden and extensive bulb collection, as well as running their ?Buried Treasure? bulb nursery and ?Buried Promises? seed business, so we look forward to learning from Bob?s wide experience and hands-on practical advice.
Also on offer are a new DVD from Ian Young, talks and workshops from local presenters, a visit to Broadfields Garden in Christchurch, and the ever-popular specialist plant sales. Finally we hope to round off the weekend with a field trip on the Monday to check out the native flora of the nearby Craigieburn Skifield.
