Julia Corden, tours committee member, and MPG bursary holder Caroline Pheasey attended the Beth Chatto Symposium at the University of Essex at the beginning of September. The theme this year was “Rewilding the mind” with discussion of low water use, low maintenance and environmentally sensitive horticulture. More controversial rewilding was the subject of a recent article by MPG member Charles Quest-Ritson which can be read by clicking here. Thank you to Julia for her picture of Amaryllis belladona with allium seedheads taken during the garden party in the garden of the late Beth Chatto which formed part of the event.
