What do intrepid plant hunters and collectors of the past and present, generous patrons and sponsors, national botanical gardens, imaginative plant breeders, avid gardeners in spaces of all sizes, arable farmers, keepers of national plant collections, specialist nurseries and garden centres, herbalists and physicians reviving lost medical knowledge, innovative inventors and scientists, botanical artists, flower arrangers, cooks, hungry humans (and animals, birds, butterflies and insects) and perhaps even stealthy murderers have in common?  They are all IN PURSUIT OF PLANTS.

 

The next London exhibition of the Society will be held from 17 to 26 April 2015 with a receiving day of 23 February.  The receiving day for works ready to exhibit for IN PURSUIT OF PLANTS is 23 February 2015.
