Lecture – “The History and Development of Peonies”. Billy Carruthers, Binny Plants

17th March @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Last lecture of the winter programme but by no means least.

Billy is a stalwart member of the Caley and is currently a Vice-President. For over 20 years he has owned Binny Plants, a nursery near Uphall, West Lothian, on what was originally the old walled kitchen garden of the Binny Estate. The nursery stocks a wide variety of interesting herbaceous perennials, trees and shrubs but Billy’s specialism is Peonies. He has a range of over 300 of these beautiful plants and has exhibited at Chelsea and Gardening Scotland, winning medals at both shows.

Our talks are free to Caley members and to students (just show your student card at the door).  Visitors are very welcome to attend. All we ask is that you make a donation to The Caley at the door.

Our talks are held in the Lecture Theatre at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.  Entry is via the main reception on Inverleith Row.
