During their research into the first project “Origins of Cornish Exotic Gardens – a myth questioned”, Catharine and her husband Guy were intrigued by the contribution of a lady botanist Miss Elizabeth Andrew Warren who like them lived in Flushing. Miss Warren had been a significant figure in the identification of plants arriving in Falmouth during the mid 19th century. This sparked their interest to pursue further research into Miss Warren’s life and work during those years. A natural follow-on of one piece of volunteering leading to another.
