Each year, we organise a number of talks on subjects that are likely to be of interest to members. These talks are very popular.

In 2019, our wide-ranging topics include:

  • Beekeeping in the Past and Now
  • A Look Behind the Scenes of a Prize-winning Nursery
  • The Gardens of Cornwall
  • The Restoration and Development of the Whickham Community Garden
  • Italy and Italian Gardens
  • Cragside...the Gardens Through the Seasons.

All talks, unless otherwise stated, are in the Visitor Centre in the Botanic Garden starting at 7.30pm. For details of dates and speakers, please go to the Programme page.
