Historical nursery catalogues go online


There’s some great news for those gardeners who love plant nursery catalogues. Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, a remarkable collection of over 28,000 catalogues held by the RHS are to be made accessible to online audiences. Some of them date back to 1612 and come from a fascinating archive that tracks the gradual changes in gardening and gardening habits through their pages.

The whole enterprise is called the Digital Dig and more than 250 volunteers are being recruited to map the location of all the plant nurseries and make them accessible.
