Special Honour from the Royal Horticultural Society

July 10th

Everyone at Ventnor Botanic Garden is immensely pleased and proud that Susyn Andrews, member of the VBG CIC Advisory Group, has been recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society with the award of The Veitch Memorial Medal.  

The medal is given in recognition for the contribution to the advancement of the art, science and practice of horticulture.  In Susyns case the citation is for her contribution to the identification and nomenclature of garden plants.  The award was made by the Countess of Wessex at the RHS Hampton Court Palace flower show earlier this month.
