Since 1673, the Garden has seen some of the most famous names in horticultural history associated with it, and their legacies live on today. Throughout the 1700's, the Garden became the world's leading centre for plant exchange and distribution thanks to these pioneers. Some of the species they introduced are displayed in this Historical Walk, including plants introduced or grown for the first time in Britain by famed Head Gardener, Philip Miller, and rare seen tender species from Australia and New Zealand introduced by Joseph Banks.
