The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) has existed in Scotland's capital in one form or another for almost 350 years.


Using images from the collections of the RBGE Library and Archives, Leonie Paterson, RBGE's archivist, will outline some of that history, talking about some of the Regius Keepers (Directors), Horticulturists and Plant Collectors who have made the Garden what it is today. 

Leonie Paterson has worked at RBGE for over 14 years and is responsible for the historic archives of the organisation which include letters, photographs, maps and illustrations.
