I am working as an arborist at the UK's premier tree collection Westonbirt Arboretum. I have been given the exciting opportunity to go on a seed collecting expedition to South Korea in September of this year. With me will also be going someone from Bedgebury Pinetum, Wakehurst Place and Kew, The Royal Botanic Gardens. I am yet to meet these people, but I hope to introduce them to you all very soon. I am starting this blog not only to track my own progress through the adventure, but also to give anyone who is interested an idea of the world of seed collecting from the view point of someone taking their first steps into it.
