Garden talk: Ornamental plants: future invaders?
Tuesday 10 March 2020 19:00 (60 Minutes)
Our gardens are home to 17,000 plant species introduced from all over the world. A small number of these ornamental plants have become invasive, having a detrimental impact on native biodiversity. Climate change could provide opportunities for more plants to become a problem. The challenge is knowing which plants might become our future invaders.
Join passionate gardener Tomos Jones, a NERC SCENARIO PhD student at the University of Reading. Before starting his PhD, he worked at Treborth Botanic garden in Wales. Tomos also completed a British Council internship at Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden in Yunnan, China, where he focused on in situ orchid conservation.
Gardeners are crucial to Tomos’ approach to this challenge; the talk will discuss how gardeners can help and how we can understand the impact of climate change on invasive plants from our gardens.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to high demand for our restaurants, express dinner before (three-course set menu for £25) or dinner after the event usually needs to be reserved in advance. If you would like to book a table, please email email@example.com
