Green Finger Tips, your local  Gardening Club, will have its first meeting of 2017  on Thursday the 2nd of February, 7.30pm in the Sand Hutton and Claxton Village Hall

Jonathan Burton, manager at Ray Wood, part of the Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard, will be giving a talk titled “In the footsteps of Forrest”

Jonathan recently visited the spectacular Chinese locations where George Forrest  and many of the famous French Missionaries botanists were based. He will talk about  the tour and the plants and collectors it revolved around

George Forrest (1873 – 1932), a Scottish botanist, was one of the first explorers of China‘s then remote southwestern province of Yunnan, the most biodiverse province in the country. He had an interesting and important life as a ‘plant hunter’ and received the Royal Horticultural Society‘s Victoria Medal of Honour. He discovered numerous species and the specific epithet forrestii now adorns more than thirty genera. Including; Rhododendron forrestiiPieris formosa var. forrestiiPrimula forrestiiIris forrestii and Hypericum forrestii

A Himalayan Poppy collected by George Forrest in Yunnan

Jonathan has an interesting and fascinating tale to tell. 

 We have a full programme of monthly talks, about a wide range of gardening topics and issues, together with an number of garden visits throughout the year. So if you’re a keen gardener or a gardener new to the area please come along an join us, you’ll be very welcome.

We look forward to seeing  you all members and possible new members on the 2nd February and getting our 2017 programme off to a cracking start.
