About Trevor Bath

Trevor Bath is widely recognised as a leading authority on hardy geraniums. He lectures for the Royal Horticultural Society, which describes him as 'an acknowledged expert on the use of plant associations for effect'. Trevor ran his own nursery and raised 'Lily Lovell', an improved version of Geranium phaeum. Joy Jones, organiser of the Hardy Geranium Group of the Hardy Plant Society for the past 20 years, modestly describes herself as an amateur gardener: her small garden hosts an impressive collection of hardy geraniums.
