British botanist Joseph Hooker was the Galileo of plants. He spent his life studying every petal, stem and behaviour of shrubs and flowers around the world, earning him the title the 'King of Kew'. This exhibition charts his discoveries through botanical drawings, and will put the earliest western illustration of Mount Everest on display.
