When I became NC holder of Aeoniums doors opened up under the Plant Heritage flag and in 2021 I was able to show off my precious plants Hampton Court. It meant I could show the public the species from each a Canary Island and highlight how threatened they are by climate change, tourism and loss of habitat. This was the first ever RHS exhibit of just Aeonium species.
When I arrived on the Tuesday morning to find a silver gilt medal I was pretty chuffed and I felt proud for my plants.
