Timothy Shaw is a third-year student on the Kew Diploma, prior to this he completed the two-year Kew apprenticeship. He has a passion for all things plant related and specifically has interests in the management of temperate trees in Arboreta and Botanic gardens. Tim’s Lecture will summarize his travel scholarship to Tbilisi Botanic Garden in Georgia where he spent ten days working alongside their horticulturists and scientific teams. With climate change beginning to affect the growing conditions for our European native trees, should we seek to find plants more suitable to these changes?
