BHUTANESE PLANTS IN BERKSHIRE GARDENS
Saturday 26th May 1996
For Members of Bhutan Society of the UK

Shown round Savill & Valley Gardens by John Bond, Keeper of the Gardens.
Then tour of P.N.Kohli Memorial Botanical garden - the world's smallest!
A selection of Himalayan plants were on sale in aid of the 'Bhutan Society Trust Fund'

PLANTS ADAPTED TO DESERT CONDITIONS
Several Mini-bus loads of 'A' Level Biology students from the then Slough Grammar were given a tour of the garden,
with a "hands-on" demonstration of plants from the Himalaya and borderlands of Tibet with adaptations
to xerophytic conditions followed by a slide-show illustrating plants in hot and cold high-altitude
deserts with props. Donations to Himalayan Plant Association.

HIMALAYAN PLANTS UTILISED IN TIBETAN MEDICINE
After Amchi Tsewang Smanla had been given a tour of the garden, I arranged for him to give a presentation on his
work as a doctor of traditional medicine in Ladakh at Langleywood School, Slough. Funds raised by charging an entrance
fee were given to Tsewang towards his Yuthog Foundation in Ladakh.
