Gardening enthusiast can find out more about the history of horticulture after a new exhibition opened at Potters Bar Museum.

The History of Gardening in England opened last week at the Wyllyots Centre on Darkes Lane.

Visitors can learn about fashions and styles of floriculture and landscaping from the Roman occupation to the present day.

Arnold Davey, who has been curator at the centre for 14 years, said: “Most people have a garden but they not know much about the styles and plants, and how they came to be here today.”

The exhibition’s open hours are Saturday 11am to 1pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 2.30pm to 4.30pm and runs until June.
