MATTHEW BIGGS
"Two Great Plant Hunters"

We are delighted to announce the visit of Matthew Biggs, gardener, plantsman, writer, television presenter and frequent broadcaster, (BBC Radio 4's 'Gardeners' Question Time' etc) to Peter Tavy Village Hall on Friday, 9th Feb and to Buckland Monachorum Village Hall on Saturday, 10th Feb 2018, with his one-man show "Two Great Plant Hunters".

In the show, Matthew will be appearing in the guise of two great plant hunters of the past - Ernest Wilson and George Forrest. He gave this performance first at last year's RHS Malvern Spring Show, where it was enthusiastically received, and we are very fortunate in having him here. The evening will consist of two 45-minute sessions; one for each gardener, and at the end, there will be a short question and answer session on any aspect of gardening.

Matthew has written a number of books including Lessons From Great Gardeners, and Secrets of Great Botanists, co-authored What Houseplant Where with Roy Lancaster and contributed to two books for Gardeners' Question Time, as well as writing regularly for Gardeners' World magazine, BBC Gardens Illustrated and the Royal Horticultural Society's Journal 'The Garden'. Matthew will bring some of his books for sale on the night.

The event will be held at Peter Tavy at 7.30pm on Friday, 9th February and at Buckland Monachorum on Saturday 10th. Tickets will be £6 at each venue.
