The event, to be held on 14 September at the Kent nursery, is currently intended to be the highly-topical proposition that "Plants are good for us and make us better".

Marketing manager Nick Coslett explained in a newsletter that "the intention is to look at the research and information about the health benefits of plants and working/living among plants". Whether some plants were better than others will also be discussed.

Speakers are still be decided with further information to be released in April.

This year's workshop focused on sustainability, with guest speakers including landscape professionals, scientists and ecologists.
