Seven years of research, sometimes in less than hospitable locations around the globe, lie behind Dr Chris Clennett’s new book - The Genus Erythronium: A Botanical Magazine Monograph. By day Chris works in the beautiful botanic gardens of Wakehurst Place at Ardingly, but to write the learned tome on Erythronium he had to climb remote mountain ranges in California and even follow in the path of grizzly bears.
