About the event

In this evening talk, Leonie Paterson, Archivist at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh and Yvette Harvey, Keeper of the RHS Herbarium will reveal the secret life of the plant collectors as they examine the photographs and personal records of the professional plant collector George Forrest. Concentrating on his first trip to China in 1904, they will look at the process of plant collecting and the people behind it, showing rare photographs of the indigenous collecting teams whose skill and support ensured his great success.

The talk will take place in the RHS Lindley Library, including the opportunity for a late evening viewing of the public library and the exhibition 'Collecting in the Clouds'.
