Plantsman and TV star Tom Hart-Dyke is guest of honour at the Wales Orchid Festival which takes place at the National Botanic Garden on Saturday and Sunday, September 5-6.
As well as a visit from the patron of the Orchid Study Group, there will be a programme of talks, orchid-potting demonstrations and displays, as well as botanical art, orchid and general gardening books, and a wide range of orchid species and hybrids for sale.
The Orchid Study Group, which is based at the Botanic Garden, is this year celebrating its tenth birthday. OSG secretary Lynne Harrendence said: "We’re delighted to welcome back Burnham Nurseries, who are many-times Chelsea gold medal winners, and it is a particular pleasure to have our patron, Tom Hart Dyke, here. He will be giving two talks and signing books on the Saturday."
