The Plantsman

June 2013

In this special issue of The Plantsman we celebrate 35 years of Plant Heritage, the cultivated plant conservation charity. Introductory articles outline the history of the charity, the challenges of holding a National Plant Collection, and the Scientific collections. The other articles are written by NPC holders and cover Erigeron, Trachycarpus, herbaceous Clematis, Betula in the wild, perry pears, Cautleya, and EA Bowles.
