An Evening with...
Each year, the Burton & Rossett Horticultural Society hosts a special event. Titled "An Evening with...", we have been very fortunate to attract some big names from the world of gardening TV and radio, with another great speaker booked for 2019.
The Burton & Rossett Horticultural Society welcomed garden designer, journalist and television presenter, Joe Swift, as our special guest for February 2019. Joe has worked for the BBC for many years, fronting popular shows including Gardeners' World, Open Gardens, Small Town Gardens, Garden Makers and Garden Invaders. But he is perhaps best known for presenting coverage of the main RHS shows at Chelsea and Tatton.
The Burton & Rossett Horticultural Society hosted horticulturist, broadcaster and writer, Anne Swithinbank as our special guest for March 2018. Anne is perhaps best known for her regular appearances on Gardeners' Question Time, as well as presenting television programmes including The Gardens of the Caribbean and The Chelsea Flower Show on the BBC.
