Description

In this up close session, Patrick and Jean explore the influence of the great garden plant hunters such as Joseph Banks as well as botanical artists such as Sydney Parkinson, who illustrated the plants newly introduced to Britain. They will also reveal some of the beautiful and rarely seen treasures from our own botanical art collection, usually hidden away in the Central Library Strong Rooms.

Patrick Harding is an ecologist, broadcaster, author and teacher. Jean Binney is a talented botanical illustrator and the Chair of the Northern Society of Botanical Art.
