We offer a variety of talks and demonstrations throughout the year.

All talks and demonstrations last for approximately 1hr and can be adapted to meet your own groups requirements.

To enquire about availability, discuss your requirements, or find out more, please contact us.

Talks & Demonstrations:

James Lye and his fuchsias – Learn about one of England’s leading amateur Victorian horticulturalists, from Wiltshire, who is recognised as a first-class hybridiser (attributed to introducing around 100 new fuchsia cultivars), grower, and exhibitor. Hi is also renowned for growing and exhibiting his fuchsias in the style of a pyramid, in which he excelled (Illustrated Talk).

Fuchsia Care – depending on the time of year may include propagation, shaping, or preparing your plants for the winter (Demonstration).


We require a table for information and plants (as we like to bring plants to sell). If the talk includes a demonstration, we would require an additional table to demonstrate from.

Plant Sales Fuchsias:

When possible I like to bring plants to talks to sell. Please note that I am in a fuchsia gall mite area and therefore I am unable to guarantee my plants are not mite-free.
