November 2, 2019

2.30pm

Fiona Davison, Head of Libraries and Exhibitions at the Royal Horticultural Society, tells the story of The Hidden Horticulturists, the remarkable young men who played a central role in the history of British horticulture and helped to shape the way we garden today.  She traces the stories of these forgotten gardeners from Chiswick to Bolivia and uncovers tales of fraud, scandal and, of course, a large number of fabulous plants and gardens.  She will also reveal the book’s connection to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
