We look forward to welcoming you to this annual early evening event for an update on MPG business followed by a lecture with MPG member Mark Brent who is the Curator and Head of Horticulture at Oxford Botanic Garden. Some of you may have met Mark during our visit in summer 2021. His talk is entitled ‘A journey through the Mediterranean with Gardens and plants that have shaped a career in horticulture’. A journey that starts with a traineeship with the Rothschilds via Kew to Cornwall where he was Head Gardener at Lamorran House Gardens for more than twenty years. The design of Lamorran was inspired by the gardens of the Cote D’Azur amongst others. Latterly Mark has moved on to the Oxford Botanic Garden (OBG). We will learn about the newly renovated rock garden at the OBG, an integral part of the plant collection which is based on the travels of John Sibthorp in the 18th century and the book the Flora Graeca. Mark has travelled extensively throughout the Mediterranean during his career.
