Exhibition: Museum Herbarium
Find out more about the plants in the six historic gardens at the Museum through this fascinating record, the Museum Herbarium.
In this exhibition you can discover what a herbarium is and how the specimens were collected. There are pages from the Museum herbarium on display. In addition, learn more about key figures in garden history, including Gerard and Culpeper.
This year we celebrate 30 years since the ‘Bayleaf Project’. This project included the creation of a garden for Bayleaf farmhouse. The exhibition includes plans, images and the account from the time.
Meet members of the gardens team who have worked on the herbarium in the exhibition. Join them on 13, 25, 29 May and 10, 22 June.
