Event description

Description

Specialising in garden history and botanical art, explore how the Society aimed to support and enrich the commercial growth of food in the UK through defining fruit varieties, funding plant collecting expeditions, collecting horticultural knowledge from both the past and the present, and sharing that knowledge with the nation. Items on display will include volume 1 of William Hooker’s fruit portraits (1815), A New Orchard and Garden by William Lawson (1635), Robert Hogg’s The Fruit Manual (1860), and the seminal Dig for Victory publication The Vegetable Garden Display’d (1941).
