In response to Gerry Loose’s residency for Walking with Poets at Dawyck Botanic Gardens this summer I created a walk and series of images entitled, Walking with Wilson and Wang Wei.

Plant hunter Ernest “Chinese” Wilson (1876 – 1930) built his reputation gathering plant specimens from across China and bringing them to the UK. Many of the specimens he planted thrive in Dawyck today.

Wang Wei (701 – 761) was a poet, painter and writer on painting. He is credited as being the first Chinese pure landscape painter. His work became a model for future generations.

Thanks to those who joined the walk. More images and information on Gerry’s residency at-
