Cordial greetings one and all! Welcome along to my new blog, the Hidcote dream may be dead but a new adventure is just beginning here in London at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. I’ve just started on my first placement, and am currently under glass working in the Tropical Nursery (more on that later). Similar to my previous blog, I’m hoping I can offer some insight into what’s going on in the garden, and also feature reviews from the other gardens along the way that I happen to visit or volunteer at.
My email address remains bertiebainbo at gmail dot com (spam avast!) so please do get in touch with any notes and queries.
Although there will never be anything untoward bandied about on these pages, once again I must state that this is a personal blog so the opinions expressed herein may not necessarily reflect the views of the management eggs upstairs, or the Kew organisation in general.
Phew! Now let’s get on with it!
