Abergele Garden Society

Cymdeithas Arddio Abergele


The July meeting of the Abergele Garden Society will take place on Monday 11th July 2022 when we will welcome Michael Brown who will give a talk entitled “Death in the Garden”.

Michael has an MA in Garden History and is an ex Head Gardener and College Lecturer in horticulture, with a passionate interest in garden history and how gardens were created and maintained.  As a child Michael was allowed to have a patch of ground to grow whatever he liked, including his first poisonous plants. His mother called the plants weeds  - he called them wild flowers !

Michael has been a Head Gardener, a college lecturer and designed the medieval gardens at the Prebendal Manor, Nassington.  He has also acted as a consultant for other historic gardens projects and is Conservation Officer for Northamptonshire Gardens Trust.

His talk will be on Poisonous plants and be warned, many of these plants may well be growing in your garden!


At Abergele Garden Society ,everyone is welcome to come along to our talks - existing Society members as well as anyone who just wants to find out a bit more about gardening and gardens, and meet some like-minded, friendly people.
