If we can hold a meeting in October, Neil will be our speaker – fingers crossed!
To think that we have such a knowledgeable grower of these beautiful subtropical plants right on our doorstep!
Local Woolgoolga Vireya Rhododendron grower Neil Puddey is our Guest Speaker at the 21 August 2021 Coffs Garden Club meeting and very excited we are too. Neil will tell us about his journey from growing something he enjoyed having in his garden to the international success story it is today.
At the Singapore Gardens by the Bay, Neil provided Vireyas which are housed in the Cloud Forest conservatory where the environment (all under glass) replicates the cloud forests that develop in the highlands of Southeast Asia, Tropical America, Australia and Africa.
We look forward to hearing best growing/propagating practices. Neil’s plants are for sale at Secret Valley Plants, 58 River Street, Woolgoolga.
