Sarah Quarterman, Chief Executive Officer, Plant Heritage said:
“We’re delighted that moving to the Floral Marquee will mean that we are bringing together displays of National Plant Collections in one place to be able to increase exposure of the work of the Collection Holders, whether private individuals, Gardens or regular Floral Marquee exhibitors. Collection Holders work incredibly hard every year to produce wonderful displays highlighting some particularly rare and unusual cultivars and educating visitors on the importance of the conservation of cultivated plants.”
