Plant Heritage video at RHS Virtual Chelsea Flower Show

New video from Plant Heritage exhibited at RHS Virtual Chelsea Flower Show

Watch here: https://www.rhs.org.uk/shows-events/virtual-chelsea/friday/plant-heritage

The video features Lucy Skellorn, great, great granddaughter of physiologist Sir Michael Foster. Lucy knew little of his iris collection until she found some papers whilst clearing out the family home. Since realising he was considered to be the father of iris breeding, Lucy’s been searching all across the world to reunite the irises that he bred, and continues to care for this Iris collection at her home in Suffolk. Madeline Tinson’s extensive collection of Lilium (Mylnefield lilies) in Perthshire, Tom Hart Dyke’s Eucalyptus collection in Kent, and Paul Doyle’s Rebutia, Aylostera & Weingartia (incl. Sulcorebutia) cacti collection in Aberdeenshire also feature.

Thanks for their contributions.
