From the handful of plants native to Britain after the last Ice Age to the cornucopia available to gardeners today, the history of British gardening is centred round the plants introduced by intrepid plant hunters over the centuries.  From Aegopodium podogararia (ground elder) to Corydalis flexuosa “Pere David”, from the Romans to Roy Lancaster, our gardens have been enriched by the floral immigrants from across the world.
