A catalogue is presented of the succulent plants cultivated by John Blackburne (1694–1786) at Orford Hall near Warrington, Lancashire, together with biographical sketches of himself and his family. His pioneering efforts to introduce and cultivate species from North America and the tropics were widely recognised by botanists of the time, and the tradition of horticultural excellence he established led to the foundation of the Liverpool Botanic Garden in 1803.
