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.

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