British crop wild relatives on show

I fear we may have omitted to mention that a selection of Britain’s crop wild relatives would feature in one of the gardens on show at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Malvern Spring Festival. This was the brainchild of the McLaughlin sisters, Caitlin and Tessa.

Well, the show has come and gone, and the Genetic Conservation Garden, as it is called, has come away with the silver medal. Very well done, Caitlin and Tessa!

  1. Well done to Caitlin and Tessa! A proud moment as Caitlin was one of our Master’s students at the University of Birmingham. I wish I could have got down to Malvern to see the garden. However, I fully expect there to be more successes to follow.
