Exhibitions in 2012

There will be a suitably stunning exhibition opening in the Nash Conservatory at Kew Gardens from 1 March 2012.

Next year we will also have IGPOTY exhibitions in Cumbria, Exeter, Ironbridge Shropshire, Winchester, Falkirk and Chelsea Physic Garden. In addition we will be going overseas to the New York Botanical Garden and the Sydney Botanic Garden, Australia.

We invite you to be part of this exciting and life-enhancing project!

Good luck!
