“Botanica Jones: Scientist, Merchant or Thief?”

Garden Exhibit July 13-November 17

When plant explorers delve into new worlds they bring many questions. The scientist might ask, “What is it? How does it grow? What does it do?” The merchant will consider the profitability of a plant’s production or trade, whether it is a new crop that can open new markets. But the thief…Visit a wealthy Englishman’s garden,showcasing plants brought back by “Botanica Jones,” a plant explorer of the late 1800s through early 1900s. Enjoy the manor’s formal flower garden, informal shrub border, and fern and hosta glen while you view exotic specimens and discover fascinating episodes of daring and peril that real plant hunters endured. By the end of your visit, you can decide whether you have the passion to join these botanical elite. The“Botanica Jones” exhibit is sponsored by WAJI Majic 95.1 and PBS 39.
