    An Afternoon with Carol Klein

  • When
    28 April 13:00 - 15:00
  • One of our most familiar gardening experts in the media today, Carol Klein is most famous for her role as regular presenter of BBC Gardeners’ World, having featured on (almost) every programme since 2005. She has also fronted many television series including Life in a Cottage Garden and has covered all the wonderful shows from Chelsea and Tatton to Hampton Court.

    Carol is a prolific author and has written numerous books including Grow Your Own Veg which sold more than a quarter of a million copies and was named ‘best-selling gardening book’ for two years running. She also writes regularly in the gardening press and for national newspapers.

    Her natural, down-to-earth approach has made her a popular and trusted figure, and she makes a special journey to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh for two events this Spring.

    Event 1: Life in a Cottage Garden 1.00pm – 2.15pm
    Join Carol for an audio-visual stroll through the seasons in her glorious cottage garden.

    Event 2: In Conversation-A Gardener’s Life. 3.45pm – 5.00pm
    A fascinating discussion on Carol's work, in conversation with BBC Radio Scotland’s Theresa Talbot.

    Both events include a Q&A session and book signing.

    Venue: RBGE Lecture Theatre, 20a Inverleith Row
    Price: £19.50, £35.00 for both events if purchased at the same time
    Booking: Online box office or tel: 0333 666 3366 (£1.50 admin fee applies to phone bookings)

    A donation from the ticket sales will be given to the Friends of RBGE to support conservation, research and education work across all four Gardens.
