HTA National Plant Show, sponsored by Hortipak, is delighted to announce that Dan Heims, President of Terra Nova Nurseries, USA, will open the show seminar programme at 10am on Tuesday 26 June 2012. Dan will share his passion for plants following in the footsteps of previous plant-focussed seminar speakers Roy Lancaster and Raymond Evison.
Dan has been involved in every facet of horticulture and his articles and photos have been seen in many magazines. He has taught horticulture courses, wholesaled exotic plants and run his own landscape business. He has also hosted a weekly gardening show on the radio and has been on the BBC.
Dan will share his ‘garden gems’ – a fun compilation of some of the newest, most exciting perennials, tropicals, and woody shrubs from his world-wide trips to botanical gardens, plant shows and nurseries.
Two plant-focussed seminars will run on Tuesday 26 June; the first at 10am and the second at 3pm and a further seminar will run at 10am on Wednesday 27 June.
HTA Events Manager Sam Gunston said, “We are delighted that such a renowned speaker as Dan has agreed to talk at this year’s HTA National Plant Show. This year’s show is attracting a global line up of speakers which will generate interesting plant-focussed seminars. The HTA National Plant Show is the perfect showcase for UK plant suppliers and presents a great opportunity for plant buyers and garden centre managers to meet under the one roof.”
