Meeting with speaker: Brian Roach on 'Native Plants for a Cottage Garden'

Date:Saturday August 25
Time: 2 - 4pm
 Venue: Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook.   see map

Brian has been a member of SGAP/APS for over 40years. For much of that time he has operated a small, ‘back-yard’ native plant nursery from his home firstly at Normanhurst and since 1981 from his home at Westleigh. 

His first gig as a guest speaker was to his own North Shore APS Group in 1993. In the intervening 25 years he has extolled the virtues of our wonderful native flora on around 120 occasions including 80 presentations to general garden clubs in and around Sydney and further afield.  Later in the year he will be speaking to the Ulladulla, Wyong and Bateau Bay garden clubs along with the Royal Horticultural Society. 

He has a variety of topics about native plants prepared as PowerPoint presentations, including ‘Native Plants for a Cottage Garden’. This topic has proved particularly popular with general gardens clubs, and not surprisingly with what is undoubtedly the largest general garden club in NSW, the Cottage Garden Club at Epping.
