    1. Reginald John Farrer

      Reginald Farrar 1880 1920 , suffered from a cleft palate and though undergoing various treatments, was never cured, making much of his speech unintelligible, his voice resembling a shallow screech, like wind through cracked metal As his condition prevented him from going to school, he spend a solitary childhood scrambling the Yorkshire cliffs, collecting the delicate alpines which grew there He soon learnt their names, and by the age of 13 had published a report in a scientific journal Eventually, he went to Oxford, hoping to become a novelist, but instead developed his love of botany, later writing books which almost single handedly brought gardening to the masses before, it had been the preserve of the rich Farrar only lived for 40 years, yet in that time he introduced many new species garnered from plant expeditions to the Far East, and put a rockery in every backyard.
