 This talk will give us a brief history of a remarkable nursery which sent 23 plant collectors to many countries, mainly during the Victorian period.  It highlights some of the well-known and interesting varieties introduced by the pioneering plant hunters who discovered many hundreds of new species. So successful were they that there is scarcely a garden in the British Isles that does not contain a plant derived from their introductions.
