Reaching a wider audience

The show complements the work of the RHS Lindley Collections, with RHS Gold medal-winning artworks regularly added to the collections, contributing to a long legacy of botanical art collecting and displaying by the RHS.

We hold more than 30,000 botanical paintings stretching back to the 1630s and heritage photographic images starting in the 1860s. Botanical art and photography help pinpoint trends and discoveries of plants popular in UK gardens.
