Join us in this exciting look at gardening under glass while exploring the history of conservatories near and far—including Longwood, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens (Pittsburgh, PA); and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (London, UK)—and how these spaces have evolved over time. President and CEO of Phipps Richard Piacentini; Director of Gardens at Kew Richard Barley; and Longwood Chief Horticulture and Facilities Officer Sharon Loving discuss what makes a successful conservatory, why glasshouses can be challenging, and what future horticulture opportunities they may present. Learn about cutting-edge innovations and technologies that are pushing the boundaries of what is possible in conservatories—and how we can make them even more sustainable in the future.
