The Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society, or the ‘Caley’ as it’s better known these days, was set up in 1809 as a platform for gardeners, horticulturalists and plant enthusiasts to share learning and best practice throughout Scotland. Today, the Caley aims to inspire, encourage and improve the science and practice of horticulture and to advance education in gardening for the public benefit.
It’s on that note that the Caley is launching a new series of Autumn lunchtime lectures, which will be held in various places throughout the country. These will begin on Saturday 14 November at 1.30pm with a talk at the Hidden Gardens in Glasgow with self-confessed plantaholic, Brian Young, from Holmes Farm Plants in Ayrshire.
The event is free for members, and visitors are asked to pay a donation. We look forward to seeing you there! Everyone’s welcome – from amateurs to professionals.
g you there!
