The Curator of Treborth Botanic Garden, Natalie Chivers, completes the trio of inspirational women in horticulture on Friday, January 25, with a talk entitled ‘Treborth Botanic Garden – small garden, big plans’. Like many botanic gardens, Treborth has a fascinating history and Natalie will be sharing some of the key milestones and exciting plans for the future. As well as caring for more than 2,000 species of plants and planning the future of her Garden’s collections, Natalie has a keen interest in garden design and has worked for designers at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show since 2014. There will be an introductory talk by Abigail Lowe, a Garden PhD Student, on her research which uses pollen DNA metabarcoding to discover which plants pollinators are using within the Garden and the Waun Las National Nature Reserve.
Talks start at 12noon in the Garden’s Principality House. To book a space on these talks, please visit the Garden’s Eventbrite page.
