RBGE- Elspeth Mackintosh retires after 32 years !
« Reply #331 on: July 03, 2021, 09:41:20 PM »
After thirty-two years work at RBGE - building a lasting legacy in the Alpine  Dept., Elspeth Mackintosh has retired from her  post. These  photos were shown by David Knott, Curator of Living Collections at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, on Twitter  to mark the  event.
Elspeth has been an active member  of  SRGC too, of course, and is well known to all those  who have enjoyed her spectacularly planned displays from RBGE  at SRGC and AGS shows.  Showing these  happy snaps from Elspeth's retirement "bash", David Knott wrote : Happy retirement Elspeth Mackintosh after 32 years nurturing @TheBotanics  #Alpine plants. #rbgehort #alpineplants #lastinglegacy "

Elspeth was one  of  Alf Evans' RBGE Angels - and we wish her great happiness in a long retirement!

"A special Gardeners’ Corner from one of the oldest botanic gardens in the country.  The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh houses important and endangered plant collections and it’s also a renowned centre of horticultural education. In this programme, David Maxwell gets an introduction to the gardens from David Knott, curator of the living collection before heading to the huge herbaceous border where Kirsty Wilson explains why perennials are good for gardening on a budget and how to control invasive bindweed. In the experimental rain garden, David finds out about gardening with climate change in mind and in the rock garden Scott Cook reveals why the place smells like bubble gum.  David finishes his tour in the glasshouses which are currently closed to the public and undergoing a multimillion pound renovation known as ‘Edinburgh Biomes’.  Also on the programme Helen Mark visits Malachy Smyth at North Sperrin Herb Farm."
