About the Author

Christopher Grey-Wilson has been the Editor of the Alpine Garden Society since 1990, and is also a freelance horticultural writer and photographer. For many years he was a Principal Scientific Officer at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, working as a Research Botanist, and as Editor of Curtis' Botanical Magazine. He has been on a number of major botanical expeditions in pursuit of the mountain floras of Europe and Asia, particularly those of the Himalaya and southwest China. He is the author of several books regarded as standard works, including The Genus Cyclamen, The Illustrated Flora of Britain and Northern Europe, How to Identify Wild Flowers, The Alpine Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe, A Manual of Alpine and Rock Garden Plants, and The Alpine Garden. He serves on a number of committees of the Royal Horticultural Society, who recently awarded him a Gold Veitch Memorial Award.
