Wide Range of Plants for Sale by Derry Watkins 

Derry grows plants from all over the world and spends as much time as possible out in the wild looking for new ones.  Her first love was for tender perennials, plants for pots and greenhouses.  This led to several trips to South Africa collecting new species. Trips to Bulgaria Turkey and Kyrgistan have led to many hardy introductions. She is wildly enthusiastic about all her plants.  She writes and teaches both here and abroad, as well as still running her nursery near Bath.  Derry founded Special Plants Nursery thirty years ago. 

Talk at 2.30pm by Derry Watkins

Tickets for Derry’s talk £12.50 each. To purchase a ticket for Derry's talk click here.
