Talk: Seed collecting in Japan by Dr Timothy Walker

Thursday 14th November 2019

Japan is fascinating country, with 1 in 3 of the 4,500 species growing only in Japan. Much of the land is mountainous and thus is a rich source of alpine species. He talks about an expedition arranged jointly by RBG Kew and the Alpine Garden Society in which seeds from 450 species were collected. Along the way the group were treated to many of the unique aspects of Japanese life. The talk looks at the state of plant conservation in Japan.

Doors open at 7.15pm and the talk starts at 7.45pm.
