Brian Ellis

Brian is a well-known nurseryman and plant enthusiast running the well-known Avondale nursery in Coventry. Brian has a passion for collecting rare and unusual plants mainly herbaceous perennials and grasses.

Brian's talk topics include:

'A Riot of Colour'. Slides of perennial flowers in our Library Garden at the nursery through spring and summer.

'Texture and Foliage in the Garden'. Slides illustrating how foliage is as important as flowers in the garden.

'Pictures from a Library Garden'. A new talk with slides of my favourite perennials in our garden.

'Roots and Shoots'. A practical propagation demonstration. I can only do this talk in March or September!
