Branklyn Garden Study Day 16th June 2022

SGLH members and guests enjoyed lectures by Leonie Patterson RBGE Archivist, Dr Allan Elliot RBGE Taxonomist and Jim Jermyn Branklyn Garden Property Manager in the morning followed by guided walks around Branklyn Garden in the afternoon.  The study day organised by SGLH Vice Chairperson Christopher Dingwall was arranged to celebrate the gardens’ Centenary year.

We learned about the escapades of plant hunters, the taxonomy of Rhododendrons and role of Heritage Gardens and collections and Branklyn Garden through the seasons, before exploring the garden laid out by the Renton’s from 1922 with a guided walk led by Property Manager Jim Jermyn.
