An interesting evening ahead on July 12th as Dr Steve Reynolds discusses ‘plant problems’. Steve is best known as one of Shropshire’s experts on plant pests and diseases and is a popular speaker on the circuit. He has run garden clinics with the likes of David Bellamy and Daphne Ledward at Southport Flower Show and advises award-winning nurseries such as Ashwoods. Recently he has been teaching Birmingham Botanical Gardens’ trainees to ‘Know Their Enemies!‘. In 2007, Steve was honoured with an invitation to appear on the Celebrity Grow It Stage at the NEC’s Gardeners’ World Live Event. He’s also been present on Gardeners’ Question Time duty at the Holker Hall Festival in the Lake District, the Midlands Summer Gardeners’ Weekend, the Welsh Gardening Show in Llangollen and the Royal Welsh Show on many occasions. In any spare time, he loves volunteer bus driving for Shropshire, plant problem troubleshooting for the National Trust and serious social walking / hill climbing.
Please bring your poorly plants for a diagnosis!
