Ross_gardens Garden People: Valerie Finnis & the Golden Age of Gardening
by Ursula Buchan and Anna Pavord
Valerie Finnis, who died on October 17 aged 81, was a greatly-admired horticulturist and garden photographer, and established a trust to help young gardeners. Blessed with unusually strong powers of observation, she was an expert grower of alpine plants, especially the demanding Kabschia and Engleria saxifrages from European limestone mountains; and although self-taught, her plant photographs were in great demand in the 1960s and 1970s for greeting cards, calendars, magazines and illustrated books.
