Today, an exhibition opens at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh which celebrates the life of Victorian plant hunter John Jeffrey.

I’ve designed and curated the exhibition with staff from RBGE. Its opening has been timed to coincide with the launch of my latest book Green Gold.

The exhibition features the paintings of Nicola Macartney, plus materials from RBGE including specimens from the Herbarium, and letters and minutes from their archives.

The exhibition is open daily between 1000-1745 and runs until end June, and entry is free. Here’s a sneak preview.
