Guiding principles behind the collection
The major part of our collection is to show what is available to the general public, even if it is rather unusual. We hold well over 3000 different plant forms, covering a wide range of genera. I have completed the form with details of the Narcissus species and cultivars, many collected in the 1920s and the 1930s.
