Snickering aside, the Sir Hooker House Terrarium is a tribute to Sir William Hooker, the Director of the Royal Botanical Gardens 1841-1865. Sir Hooker was a contemporary of Dr. Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward, and was responsible for convincing the British government to include Botanists on expeditions throughout the Empire and beyond. In the first 15 years of the invention of the terrarium, he imported 6 times more varieties of flora to Europe than in the previous century. The Sir Hooker House Terrarium features a 4 point pyramid hip roof, a clean symmetrical design, and the space to cultivate your own collection of rare plants.
