Field Photographs by Bleddyn Wynn-Jones
The 1st garden in RHS history to exclusively use fully traceable plants, Cave Pavilion lists every plant with its individual seed collection number, describing where the seed was collected, who by and when. Many of these plants will not have been seen before in cultivation and this is the first time an RHS garden will unveil new plant species and a new genus! Many of these plants are categorised by the IUCN as vulnerable and endangered, but most importantly the majority remain un-assessed, illustrating the extent of the horticultural unknown, and raising the concern that many of these plants could become extinct before conservation data has been obtained.
