Have you ever wondered about the stories behind your favourite garden flowers? How and why, they came to be there or why some cultivars go in and out of favour? Each flower has a story, and in this lecture Advolly Richmond takes you on a global tour of some intriguing, surprising and enriching tales and scenarios.
