The Lindley Library at the headquarters of the Royal Horticultural Society specialises in botanical art and garden history. The botanical art collection of the Lindley Library is the home of the artwork purchased from artists displaying at the RHS Botanical Art Show - as well as many treasures produced by artists in the past.
It is often a place of reference for botanical artists wanting to find out more about a topic they are interested in.
However, anybody wanting to pay a visit to the Lindley Library this winter - or during the RHS Botanical Art Show in February - will need to have a rethink as it will be closed.
The RHS have announced the arrangements for the temporary closure of the Lindley Library while they undertake a major refurbishment project. All the botanical art has been packed up and sent off to safe and secure storage!
You can find details of the arrangements and dates online in Lindley Library closure winter 2015/16 (pdf file)
