more mail from Matt over the weekend, asking what it is that I give lectures on. I give lectures on plants – in other words, I talk about my work. Not very exciting I’m afraid, but it brings in a bit extra cash and promotes the business at the same time. I started doing them about 8 or 9 years ago, mostly to local gardening clubs, but now I get bookings from far and wide – last year I gave two lectures in Philadelphia, and there has been talk of a trip to California, but that hasn’t happened yet. The problem is that, whilst I am well known on the local “circuit”, I’m not so well known nationally or internationally. I keep playing with a website to promote my lecture activites, but still haven’t got round to putting it online. I guess I should somewhen.
