The RGBE's many India-related plants and resources

The RBGE trained many doctors and botanists who went to India, as well as providing a home for plants, seeds, and illustrations, sent back from India. Henry Noltie has been instrumental in conserving these and making them more widely available: see his guided walk Botanics Story: Plants from India, and Celebrating 70 years of Indian Independence.

An article by Aline Dobbie on two books, Botanical Art from India: The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh Collection, and on The Cleghorn Collection: South Indian Botanical Drawings 1845 to 1860, both also by Henry J Noltie, and published by RBGE Publications.
