Dr Lusby is Head of School of Horticulture at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.  Since RGBE was founded in 1670 there have been profound changes in the layout of British gardens and the plants used.  It has played a seminal role in increasing the number of plants available to gardeners and the advancement of horticultural techniques.  The Garden has been associated with the work of some of the most famous botanists, plant collectors and horticulturalists.
