The Journal of Botanic Garden Horticulture from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, edited by Dr David Rae, previously Director of Horticulture and Education. Sibbaldia publishes a broad range of practical knowledge and experience in botanic garden cultivation from many countries, built up over many decades.
