Wedgwood and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) have enjoyed a long and close relationship. In fact, the longest possible relationship because it goes back to before day one with John Wedgwood, the first son of Josiah Wedgwood 1.
John was born in 1766 and educated at Warrington Academy and the University of Edinburgh. He was a partner in Wedgwood from 1790 – 1793.
He developed a growing interest and fascination for all forms of agriculture, including flowers and vegetables, and the cultivation of tropical fruit and other exotic plants.
