In this talk, I embark my audience on a journey around the world. I first look at the history of plant hunting, which has brought us the plant diversity that we see on our gardens nowadays (over 60% of garden plants are in fact "foreign"!). I then try to discuss how and if, plant hunting is still relevant in today's world. Can we still introduce plants from abroad? Will the diversity of plants in our garden decrease as more legislation is introduced to protect natural resources?
