Description

In 1733, a garden revolution began when farmer John Bartram sent American plants and seeds to London merchant Peter Collinson. Over the next 40 years, a small group of naturalists made Britain a nation of gardeners and the epicenter of horticultural expertise. This beautifully told narrative tells the stories of Bartram, Collinson, Gardeners Dictionary author Philip Miller, Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, and Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, who explored the flora of Brazil, Tahiti, New Zealand and Australia aboard Captain Cook’s Endeavor. Paper back, 368 pages.
