'FOR WESTERN GARDENERS'

Regional Programme Western

Hardy heather cultivation is one of the least-known branches of gardening. Heather was first introduced into England in the eighteenth century, and its cultivation had reached a high level by 1838, but in that year-exactly a century ago-an exceptionally severe, frost almost completely destroyed the heather gardens of Great Britain. It was this catastrophe that led to the introduction of the hardy variety.
Tonight H. G. Fleet brings with him to the studio J. W. Porter , a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society and an expert in the cultivation of the hardy heather, to discuss the subject for Ulster gardening listeners.
