ONE of the county's top gardeners is the special guest speaker in an event in Budleigh Salterton to raise money for cancer.

Keith Wiley, the former head gardener for The Garden House for over 25 years will be conducting a seminar on behalf of Exeter Leukaemia Fund.

Keith developed a style of gardening based on adopting and 'modifying' the natural landscapes from around the world.

Member of the club Noel Allen said: "Mention The Garden House and the name Keith Wiley immediately springs to mind...I would describe (his garden) as perhaps one of the most exciting and innovative gardens in Britain.

"Keith will be speaking about this time at the Garden House...an inspiration to anyone who has visited."

Tickets are �5 each, and available from the Garden Shop, Budleigh Salterton and the event will be held at the Public Hall on March 20 at 2.30pm.
