Colin Mills, compiler of the Hortus Camdenensis, died in late November 2012 after a short illness. As he always considered the Hortus his legacy, it is his family's intention to keep the site running in perpetuity. It will not, however, be updated in the near future.

History at Camden Park

The only reference is a hand-written note in a copy of the 1850 catalogue held at the Mitchell Library and inscribed on the front Wm. Macarthur 23rd. Dec. 1854 [ML 635.9m].  It was certainly grown in the gardens at this time.
