Reviews

"This beautifully illustrated book examines the role of the garden in Britain, from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. In doing so, the whole world is involved as plants are discovered and brought into use for medicinal and commercial purposes. The discovery of seed development, Darwin's influence, the removal of mysticism, and the development of glass houses brought an understanding of how plants grow. . . . The book includes wonderful lithographs and reproductions of early rare manuscripts. Planting paradise is worthy of study."--Adele Kleine "Chicago Botanic Garden " This beautifully illustrated book examines the role of the garden in Britain, from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries.
