Quaker Botanists


The Golden Age of Quaker Botanists is an informative book which reveals the plant hunters responsible for up to 1,000 of the UK’s best-loved garden plants. Described by broadcaster, writer, gardener Alan Titchmarsh, as ‘A fascinating new look at the history of some much-loved garden plants and trees and their Quaker ‘roots’’, the book tells the story of how Quaker plant hunters journeyed to America, New Zealand, Australia and Africa to discover, recover, identify and introduce new species to this country. It is beautifully illustrated with newly-commissioned, hand-drawn colour plates.
