A Fragrant Memory

Immerse yourself in the biography of botanical artist, Margaret Flockton. 

Whether you're a fan of Margaret Flockton's work or botanical illustration more broadly, you will be delighted to read the biography of the Garden's first botanical artist.

Margaret’s great-niece, Louise Wilson spent more than 12 years researching family memorabilia and stories about her ‘Aunt Mog’, bringing it all together in Margaret Flockton: A Fragrant Memory. Louise offers personal insight into this clever, talented, shy and reclusive woman.

Margaret Flockton: A Fragrant Memory was launched by Professor the Hon. Dame Marie Bashir AD CVO at Sydney's Royal Botanic Garden, on 17 November 2016.

The book is available from Foundation & Friends Cottage for $49.95 ($44.95 for Foundation & Friends Members) or for $59.95 ($54.95 for Foundation & Friends Members) including postage.
