'The Brother Gardeners'
A well researched yet very easy to read account of the early days of plant introductions to European cultivation, starting with what are perhaps some of less well known names of Bartram in the USA and Collinson in the UK, but also featuring Miller, Linnaeus, Banks, Solander along with many others and how they interacted with each other – and some were not angels! It brings to life all the practical difficulties of moving seeds and plants around the world, from sea salt and rotting through to piracy, and even the difficulties within the UK and Europe. 8 pages of colour illustrations. 2008 9 ½ x 6 ¼ 356 pages
