Graham Hardman – Designing a Japanese Garden
Graham is well known to all members of the JGS. He is currently Vice President and a Trustee of the society and was the recipient of the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays and Rosette for his contribution to introducing and promoting Japanese gardens in the UK. Graham has been involved in the design and building of several new Japanese gardens in the UK, including Walkden, Willowbrook and Bury Hospices, and has been awarded Silver and Gold medals for show gardens at the RHS Flower Show held in Tatton Park. His talk today will include the design of the renovated Japanese garden in Valley Gardens, Harrogate.
Ioan Davies – Trees
Regional members spend a lot of time working on the conservation and maintenance of Japanese gardens in the NW. Many of our new members, together with volunteer gardeners in the hospices, are involved in tree pruning and there have been numerous requests for a formal pruning workshop. We are in the process of planning a workshop for early 2019 but this lecture is designed to increase members general knowledge about trees prior to the more focused activity planned for next year.
