Razvan Chisu: Romanian Mountain Plants
Date: 11:30am-1:00pm, Jan 10, 2024
Join us for our first lunch meeting! Our guest speaker is Razvan Chisu. About Razvan:
"I am currently working as the Social Media Manager for the Alpine Garden Society and I write for various gardening magazines. In my spare time I am also organising and leading tours, and lecturing to gardening groups in the UK and abroad.
I was fortunate to grow up in Transylvania in a town surrounded by vast woodlands and species-rich wildlife meadows, a fact that has influenced the way I designed and maintained gardens. My interest extends to studying plants in the wild. Leading wildlife tours gives me the opportunity to share my interest and knowledge of botany. So far I have organised private tours to Transylvania and Spain, and have led several tours to Greece and Sweden for the AGS.
My interests range from alpine plants and bulbs, succulents, fruit and heirloom vegetables, ferns and orchids, to perennials, shrubs and trees. I am very keen on plant propagation, from getting difficult alpines to germinate to twin-scaling snowdrops and taking root cuttings of various perennials."
