Book Week Scotland at the Garden
This year it takes place on 18-24 November and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is part of it.
- The Big Botanics Book Sale from Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 November: In order to create space for our exciting new exhibitions and publishing programme we are offering this one-time opportunity to purchase catalogues from previous Inverleith House exhibitions, books of beautiful botanical art, posters and postcards all at never to be repeated prices. The ideal opportunity to complete your collection (or to start your collection!) or to start your Christmas shopping. Many of the titles in the sale are limited stock and so get there early!
- Talking Archive: Join the RBGE Archivist Leonie Paterson to explore the conversations that appear in our vast collection of letters. From the founders of the Garden to plant collectors in China join us to hear them in their own words.
- Conversation with a Scottish gardener in Paris: Born in Costorphine in 1751 Thomas Blaikie was the son of a working class family who become a gardener to the French aristocracy before (and after!) the French Revolution. Join Dr Sarah Easterby-Smith from the University of St Andrews as we explore Blaikie’s life through the diaries that are now part of the RBGE Collection.
