Some of the great plant hunters of the 19th and 20th centuries travelled in China and in particular in Western Sichuan, from where they brought back to Europe a range of exciting new plants.  This illustrated talk will show a variety of plants in their native habitats, high in the mountains, in a region adjacent to Tibet.  This proximity to Tibet means that many of the people share the Tibetan culture and this is shown in the appearance of their houses and religious buildings.

To be given by Dr Mary Walmsley on Wednesday 25 March at 10.30am at the Knoll House in the Botanic Garden.

Please park on Glebe Road, and enter the Knoll through the main door off the driveway. Non-members of the Friends are welcome too (£2 each).

Refreshments will be served in the Knoll before and afterwards. Booking will not be necessary, and we hope that you can find time to drop in and join us.
