Event Details

Colin Wren, Gardens and Designed Landscapes Manager (Edinburgh and East) at the National Trust for Scotland  will bring us on a journey of the must see gardens under his care. He will guide us on some of the rare and unusual plants to look out for and also tell us about the challenges and privileges of leading these gardens. Trained at the Royal Horticultural Society Gardens, Wisley and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Edinburgh, Colin has also worked as Gardens Manager at Edinburgh Zoo, and nursery mangare at Binny Plants, a renowned nursery and on line plant supplier in Scotland. 

This lecture will be for all of us who face similar challenges. There will be time at the end of the lecture to answer your questions regarding plant choice and care. Colin's lecture will be a great introduction to the many great gardens of Scotland to be visited. 

Entrance is open to all, members and non-members of The Irish Garden Plant Society. Please take a copy of recent Newsletters to read more about us: the lectures we will hold this Winter and the gardens we have visited this past Summer. Our website  gives more information on how to join.

IGPS Leinster

The Irish Garden Plant Society is a group of enthusiastic gardeners with a special love for Irish plants. We are passionate about researching, finding and propagating Irish plants to ensure their survival. We research Irish gardens and garden history. We actively promote Irish horticulture with recognition for our exhibits at major international shows, including Chelsea. We enjoy Irish gardens through regular talks, lectures, workshops and visits to gardens. We publish a Newsletter three times a year and a journal every few years.

The Society has members throughout the island of Ireland and is divided into three regions: Northern, Leinster and Munster. In Leinster we hold our lectures during the Winter at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin and we organise visits to gardens, many of which are private, in the Eastern region.Members are very welcome to attend lectures or visit gardens in any region. 

In addition we maintain close links with other gardens societies such as The Irish Society of Botanical Artists, Plant Heritage,the Alpine Garden Society, the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland and the Royal Horticultural Society. 

Do come along to one of our events and speak to any member for more information.
