Cornwall Garden Society Daytime Lecture by Chris Smith

Cornwall Garden Society Daytime Lecture by Chris Smith

Master grower of edible plants spills the beans

The Cornwall Garden Society’s (CGS) January lectures will be given by Chris Smith, who has spent more years working in horticulture than he cares to remember.

He established Pennard Plants in 2001, initially growing grasses and perennial plants, such as agapanthus, which he showed at RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival, BBC Gardeners’ World Live and RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.

Chris then pursued his enduring interest in vegetables and heritage varieties, and began to grow edible plants in 2006.

He developed a range of seeds, which now extends to over 600 types and includes fruit trees and bushes, herbs and other edible ornamental plants.

Chris has always operated his nursery on organic principles, without chemicals and with peat-free composts.

He has won Gold medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival and many other prestigious events. In 2017, Pennard Plants was awarded the status of RHS Master Grower.

Edimentals will be his subject on Tuesday 10th January at 7.30pm at a new venue – The Mylor Building at Truro College – whilst Natural Pest Control will be his topic on Wednesday 11th January at 2.30pm at Penventon Park Hotel in Redruth.

These lectures are free for CGS members. Non-members are welcome to attend to find out more about the Society and donations are gratefully received.

The CGS is a charity that exists to encourage and improve the science, art and practice of horticulture in all its branches; share knowledge about gardening and Cornwall’s rich garden heritage, and conserve the county’s natural environment. The Society is affiliated to the RHS and has enjoyed the patronage of HRH The former Prince of Wales.
