Books for sale

The Lindley Library at RHS Wisley has a 2nd hand book sale and recently when I’ve been working there as a volunteer I’ve noticed several specialist monographs just asking to be bought by our specialist National Collection Holders.  As a trial I contacted three different NCHs and they have all been pleased to add to their collection of research material.

Books are generally priced moderately and condition of the volume is taken into consideration.  The list is constantly changing as books are added or sold, but this is a snapshot of the current holdings.  If there is anything you are interested in, please contact us at National Office on info@plantheritage.org.uk and we’ll put you in touch with the lbrary.  Or if you are at Wisley, call in and have a look.
