Mrs Hooper Taylor lived in #bath and was involved with lots of local community activities, including the Bath #Floral #Fete and #Band Committee, and other local horticultural Societies (#Clifton, #Trowbridge, Bath).

Some additional clues in the image below to help our #detectives searching for this lost #fuchsia cultivar. Keep Hunting and sharing your finds.

We have had a great response to the previous cultivars highlighted.

Mrs Hooper Taylor (Betty) had links to the Bath Floral Fete and Band Committed and the Clifton and Trowbridge Horticultural Societies. She resided in Bath with her Husband Mr Hooper Tayor (Robert), who we will be highlighting in due course.

We hope that you will help us find more information about this #fuchsia cultivar and any information relating to its introduction or when it was last seen or listed in a #nursery catalogue.

We know that the #duke of #albany regularly visited #wiltshire, especially #marlborough college and #salisbury. Was this cultivar introduced or present to him or the #duchess at one of these visits??

Here are some additional clues to help our #detectives hunt for this lost #fuchsia cultivar... Keep Hunting and sharing.

The Duchess of Albany is looking for her lost Duke.

We are not sure when the ‘Duke of Albany’ disappeared from cultivation, and are hoping that our #detectives are able to help us reunite the couple.

The Dukedom was create in 1881 for the fourth son of Queen Victoria, and we suspect that the cultivars 'Duke of Albany' & 'Duchess of Albany' were introduced earlier that currently know date of 1885 to commemorate their marriage (Princess Helena of Waldeck and Pyrmont and Prince Leopold) in 1882.

We hope that you will help us find more information about this #fuchsia cultivar and any information relating to it's introduction or when it was last seen or listed in a #nursery catalogue.

Our missing fuchsia next week will have a #valentine theme to it, as we will be asking our #detectives to hunt for a lost cultivar, So we can re-join it with one which has survived through the years.

Thank you to one of our #detectives who has found a reference to our lost #fuchsia 'Beauty of Lavington' in 1885. So this cultivar is now a year older. Here are a few additional clues. We would love to find out more including the last time a #nursery listed it. Keep Hunting and sharing.
