4 Gardens in One: The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

9780114942106: 4 Gardens in One: The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

This volume tells the story of Scotland's national Botanic Garden, from its founding in 1670 as a small Physic Garden in the shadow of Holyrood Palace to its status today as one of the world's greatest botanical institutions. In addition to providing a glimpse of the vital scientific research undertaken there, Deni Bown guides the reader season by season around each of the four gardens that comprise the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Over 300 colour illustrations depict the exotic gardens in the city itself; on the hillside at the Younger Botanic Garden Benmore in Argyll; the sub-tropical oasis at Logan Botanic Garden in Galloway; and the borders glen at Dawyck Botanic garden in Tweedale.
