Three threads - of the orchid tapestry created by Frederick William Moore

Sir Frederick William Moore (1857-1949), famed Curator of the National Botanic Gardens, has had nine species of orchids named in his honour due to his specialist approach to these flowers. Inspired by Moore's ties to the orchidologist, Heinrich Gustav Reichenbach, botanic artist Margareta Pertl will exhibit paintings of all of the plants named after Sir Frederick Moore. Alongside Pertl’s works, Deborah Lambkin, currently the official artist to the Royal Horticultural Society's Orchid Committee, will showcase her illustrations of recently award-winning plants.
Orchid associated material from the Botanic Gardens archives will also accompany the exhibition along with a fine art print catalogue and elaboration on the tales of the depicted orchids by Brendan Sayers. To coincide with this, in April the Orchid Committee of the Royal Horticultural Society will hold a public meeting in the Gardens.
