Thanks to its aspect and microclimate, 
the 1.5 mile long Avon Gorge is home to
a unique range of plants including many that are rare or nationally scarce (autumn squill, Scilla autumnalis, rock stonecrop, Sedum fosterianum and pale St. John's-wort Hypericum montanum) and the rare endemic whitebeams, Sorbus bristoliensis and Sorbus wilmottiana. This talk will showcase the exciting work that the Bristol Botanic Gardens are undertaking to conserve and interpret this important and biodiverse habitat.

All Summer Lectures start at 6.30pm in the Daubeny Lecture Theatre (at
 the front of the Botanic Garden) and are followed by a drinks reception in the Botanic Garden.
