Nepal's spectacular plant diversity is matched by its colourful cultural heritage and dramatic Himalayan scenery.  For centuries Nepalese people have used plants for food, medicine, utensils, construction and fuel, and plants continue to sustain livelihoods.  This plant wealth is displayed through drawings commissioned by Francis Buchanan-Hamilton in 1802 along with recent artwork by Edinburgh artists who visited Kathmandu in 2015.

The exhibition celebrates the 2016 bicentenary of relationships between Britain and Nepal, and highlights RBGE's work on the Flora of Nepal.
