What will gardens in the mid 21st century look like and what skills will horticulturists of the future need?
Conference speakers will offer their perspectives on the future, from technological innovations to the challenges posed by climate change as well as issues relating to sustainability and plant health. They will speak on how to make gardens more multifunctional (offering a range of social, economic and environmental services) and recognising the role of traditional skills (such as meadow management) will also feature.
With a range of international speakers, including academics and researchers, professional horticulturists and experts in their field, the conference offers an opportunity to engage with the horticultural topics that will shape gardening in the future. Each conference session will include speaker presentations and a panel discussion, providing an opportunity for all delegates to question and comment on the topic.
