9780112500186: A Pioneering Plantsman: A.K.Bulley and the Great Plant Hunters

Presents the story of Arthur K. Bulley (1861-1942), a Liverpool cotton broker in an era of Empire and exploration. With a nose for profit and a love of flowers, he paid intrepid plant hunters to scour the mountains of China and the Himalayas for alpines and hardy plants. The plant hunters became famous, new species were discovered and gardens were subsequently enriched. The text portrays Bulley as a colourful eccentric and visionary with a passion for new and rare alpine and hardy plants. It describes how he created Ness Gardens from fields and established a famous nursery, Bees Ltd, to show and promote new flowers.
