Royal Horticultural Society Desk Diary 2021 (Hardcover)
The Royal Horticultural Society Diary 2021 brings together a beautiful selection of botanical illustrations by Rear-Admiral John Paul Wellington Furse, part of the collection held in the world-famous RHS Lindley Library.
Furse retired from the Royal Navy in 1959 and made several trips to Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Russia and Afghanistan collecting bulbs, many of which he brought back to RHS Wisley. Vice-Chairman of the RHS Lily group, he was also awarded the RHS Victoria Medal of Honour. The illustrations featured this year’s diary offer a tantalising insight into the wide range and variety of plants recorded and collected by Furse.
A beautifully produced diary illustrated in colour throughout, with a silk ribbon marker and internal storage pocket.
The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1804 and has established itself as the leading gardening charity, with the aim of inspiring passion and excellence in the science, art and practice of horticulture. The world-famous RHS Lindley Library holds unique collections of early printed books on gardening, botanical art and photographs.
