An audience with Jim Buttress VMH
Renowned horticulturist and popular broadcaster, Jim Buttress will be recounting stories from his 65 year career in horticulture. Jim managed the Royal Parks in London for 25 years and won eight gold medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show before becoming a head judge for all the RHS flower shows. He also presented the ‘Dig it’ BBC radio show for many years and was the TV judge for ‘The Allotment Challenge’. He has some entertaining and interesting tales to tell from behind the scenes of these iconic venues and events!
This September Perennial’s Director of Marketing & Fundraising, Anita Bates, and Senior Development Manager, Laura Garnett, are trekking the Great Wall of China to raise funds for Perennial. All proceeds from Jim’s talk will be donated to their fundraising to help gardeners, tree surgeons, landscapers, growers and everyone working in or retired from horticulture when
they fall on hard times.
On the night: a fully licenced bar serving real ale, cakes for sale and some wonderful auction lots and raffle prizes up for grabs. It promises to be a great night!BOOK TICKETS
