A Herbarium workshop for National Collection Holders was organised on April 14st at the RHS Wisley Herbarium.
Collection Holders were given the opportunity to collect plants with Barry Phillips, discover more about pressing and drying methods, learn how to use the RHS Colour Chart and how to write accurate labels.
Here are some pictures of the day (courtesy of June James and Yvette Harvey, Keeper of the Herbarium):
