Fiona Davison – The Hidden Horticulturists

Glasgow

March 24, 2019

6.30 pm

In 2012, whilst working at the Royal Horticultural Society’s library, Fiona Davison unearthed a book of handwritten notes that dated back to 1822. In The Hidden Horticulturists 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.

Naoko Abe’s Cherry Ingram: The Englishman Who Saved Japan’s Blossoms is the irresistible tale of a little-known Englishman, a story of Britain and Japan in the twentieth century, and an exploration of the delicate blossoms whose beauty is admired around the world.
