“Know something about plants? Share it around”

An interesting post by blogger and National Collection Holder of Banksia, Robbie Blackhall-Miles, about the importance of sharing plant knowledge:

“Plants that were once commonly cultivated in the UK have fallen out of favour, and the knowledge of how to grow them is lost. Yet those snippets of information could change the world”

Collection Holders are at the forefront of this, and we would certainly encourage you to give talks, write down your observations or growing tricks, and share your findings as widely as possible.
