Veitch & Sons: Exeter’s plant hunting adventures.
This fascinating display charts the adventures of the intrepid Veitch nursery plant hunters, who travelled all over the world in the 19th and 20th centuries collecting new species of plants.
During their travels, the plant hunters brought back objects as souvenirs. The Veitch family donated many of these items to RAMM in the 1880s and they are now part of the RAMM’s collection.
Topsham Museum also holds a collection of Veitch plants in its Riverside Garden.
