About this book

This beautiful book contains a collection of images from the RBGE Archive showing the Garden and the people who have worked in it through the ages.

With more than 100 black and white images covering the period from our earliest archived photograph (taken around 1855) to images documenting the major restructuring of the Glasshouses in the 1960s How the Garden Grew tells the story of our Garden and the people who helped it to grow.
