As part of Torquay Museum’s Explorer Season, join Simon for his talk on famous plant hunters who in the last few hundred years risked life and limb during their travels as they explored overseas, seeking out exciting new plants from far flung places, so that we can enjoy them in our gardens at home.
Simon will also be signing copies of his latest gardening book 100 Perfect Plants.
