Joseph Paxton botanical collection

Joseph Paxton (1803-1865) was the Head Gardener at Chatsworth from 1826 to 1858. Paxton proved to be the most innovative garden designer of his era, and remains the greatest single influence on Chatsworth’s garden.

The images featured in this collection are from Paxton's Magazine of Botany & Register of Flowering Plants, published in 16 volumes from 1843 to 1849. These volumes are part of the Archives within the Devonshire Collections.
