Planting for the Future at the National Trust for Scotland

The National Trust for Scotland cares for 38 historic landscapes that are home to 100,000 individual plants, both native and exotic, on behalf of future generations. But these glorious gardens are facing increased threats, from climate change to invasive species. Over the past three years, the Trust’s 70 gardeners have made significant progress in addressing these challenges at gardens from the west coast of Scotland (Arduaine) to the northeast (Pitmedden and Crathes). Kirstin Bridier, executive director of The National Trust for Scotland USA, will provide an update on these important designed landscapes as well as a peek at work underway – some of which will not come into flower for decades.
