Any Gardener Will Love This Book
My interest in gardening and plants, coupled with my interest in history made this book intensely interesting to me. I was prompted to pick it up after a trip to John Bartram's Garden, in Philadelphia, now open to visitors. A wonderfully presented look back into time, and a surprise reveal that the beautiful estates and parks of Europe got their nursery stock from one man in the Colony!Was this review helpful?

Interesting and Fantastic.
I am 50 percent through this book, and I find it exceedingly interesting on several levels--such as botany and taxonomy, botany and commerce/trade, botany and world travel (field ecology), botany and politics, botany and the upper class, botany and hothouses, botany and landscaping, naturalists, British history and U.S. history relating to botany. It is very well written. One may not necessarily agree with some of the themes as presented, but the wide range of material and the way it is presented is just amazing.Was this review helpful?
