About this book

Stuart turns garden history upside down and argues that it is the plants themselves that have driven the evolution of the modern garden. He tells the hidden stories behind everyday plants and recounts the dramatic adventures and bitter rivalries of budding collectors and botanists, and the spread of the plants' popularity in Europe and America.
