Marking a new era at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

24 February 2014

A moment in history. Simon Milne today received the Royal Warrant and the title of Regius Keeper of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE). Only the 16th person to hold the title since it was created in 1699, Milne (54) accepted the warrant from Fiona Lim of the Scottish Government’s Rural and Environment Science and Analytical Services (RESAS) division, RBGE’s principal sponsorship body.
