Most gardeners don’t know much about where their plants come from and how they reach their local nursery or garden centre. Gone are the days when they would be grown by a couple of people working in a glasshouse hidden from view!

In this talk, Graham looks at the supply chain for ornamental horticulture. Zipping around the world, looking inside laboratories, glasshouses and the inside of a lorry, Graham follows the plant from the earliest stages of production right through to the point where you pick it up in your local garden centre and put it into your trolley. It’s a more extraordinary and convoluted journey than you might imagine!
