This study focuses on the changing role of the garden in Britain from the beginning of the 16th to the end of the 19th century, and features rarely seen botanical illustrations from the Bodleian Libraries and herbaria in Oxford. From their early association with paradise, gardens evolved into laboratories to observe nature closely and storehouses for new plants, before they were transformed into tapestries of native, introduced and newly evolved species as interest in flora spread throughout all levels of society.
