Leading Botanists To Speak At Garden Museum

Horticultural Week announced that South Africa's leading botanist Prof. Braam van Wyk, will be speaking on South Africa's Highveld Grasslands at the Garden Museum, London in September.

We have great memories of the 17th century Museum of Garden History, as it was formerly called. On our honeymoon, nearly five years ago, we discovered the hidden treasure in the Church of St. Mary-at-Lamberth near the Thames River and Westminster Palace. The former church and yard is small, with a cemetary that honors the buried Sir. John Transcendant and Captain Bligh, both important in horticulture. If you have the chance to visit, dont' miss this gardening jewel. Now that it's been renovated, I can't wait to go back and see the exhibitions.
