Wardian Cases were the first sealed containers of plants. They were invented by Victorian Londoner Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward, who observed how plants could thrive in a isolated environment. The flowers in this image all now grow in the Victorian glass houses at Kew Gardens, where Wardian cases were once used to transport rare and exotic flora specimens.
The London Circles Series is a collection of five images of the capital, each portraying a different character of the city.
