In 1910, seven years after the acquisition of the Wisley estate, RHS botanists conducted a survey of wild plants on the site.

A hundred years later, their successors repeated the exercise.

With archive images from the RHS Lindley Library, colour photographs of rare and unusual plants, and a foreword by Roy Lancaster, this book presents the results, in a fascinating and comprehensive history of the native and naturalised flora that has survived in one of the countries most intensively cultivated landscapes.
