As  those  of who who have  listened  to his  first  podcast  can tell, Connor is  a  Scotsman with a  rather  nice  accent - which I am confident  will not  be  any  barrier  to understanding, no matter  where  you come  from!
Connor  has  worked  at  various  interesting  nurseries, both in  Scotland  and  around the  world  and  is  now  based at  the  Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh.  He  is  a  member  of the  SRGC Council.

He  has recently  begun a  blog - "A Scotsman's Perpective"  and  also last  winter  began a  diary  for the  Alpine  Garden Society - "A Scottish Horticulturist's Diary"


Connor  speaking  at Murabilia Gardening & Plant Fair in  Lucca, Italy  in 2019

Connor  has  also travelled  with grant  support - for  example  from the  Merlin Trust for  a  Schachen Alpine  Garden Placement - he  wrote  about  that for  both the  Rock Garden and  the  International Rock Gardener for  SRGC.

I hope  you  will all spread the  word  about  the  Scottish Rock Podcast!

Fifth episode  of the  Scottish Rock  Podcast - The Garden in the Sky
Connor  Smith looks back at his time at the Schachen alpine garden in Southern Germany last year.
A truly otherworldly garden surrounded by mountains.

 Connor  says " Number five is out as I recall my time at the Schachen alpine garden in Germany. From now on I am going to be posting the podcast episodes on the first Wednesday of every month. Unfortunately, like all things, coronavirus has affected the production capabilities of the podcast."

Connor  Smith  writes : "The recent episode  as we are joined by Jay Akerley will be the final episode of this season
The podcast has now reached over 1,000 listens and has had listeners in 37 different countries around the world.

In the future, I am hoping to have 4 episode blocks on a specific theme with experts in that field. They would be posted all within one month - to save the month waiting period per episode. A similar format to the international rock gardener.
Cheers for all the support, and I hope you have enjoyed it thus far!"

Thanks to Connor  for  all his  work on the  Scottish Rock Podcast - we  wish him even greater  success  in the  future!
(PS The  International Rock Gardener  free e-magazine  continues  to appear  on the  last  Friday  of each month!)
