Plant Hunting with Sue and Bleddyn WYNN-JONES
RHS Chelsea Flower Show President Award winners Sue and Bleddyn Wynn Jones are amongst the most important plant hunters working today. They have made over 16,000 seed collections over some 50 expeditions, providing an invaluable contribution to plant science and conservation today. Their plant hunting focuses on rare plants that can be grown in the UK, many of which have not previously been cultivated. They have scaled mountains and volcanoes, explored hidden canyons and dodged armed bandits (sometimes less successfully), to seek out elusive specimens. They work closely with government agencies, Royal and Botanic Gardens and National collections across the world.
