Plant Conservation - can we meet the great challenges we face

A talk by Ian Wright, Lead Garden Adviser for the NT in the SW & Wales

Historic parks and gardens not only face the challenge of adequate resources for their maintenance but also the increasing threat from plant pests and diseases. Ian Wright has led the National Trust work to help prevent the spread and impact of plant diseases and collections; the guidance he developed is used internationally. In 2017, he was awarded the prestigious RHS Associate of Honour.
