Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here are fifty stories of the inventions, innovations, and discoveries that have revolutionized our gardens and gardening. These unsung pioneers were fascinating characters who devised some of the most useful, and some of the most unusual, gardening tools and implements. What are the stories behind the hosepipe, the trellis, flower pots? Who invented the first water sprinkler or Gro-Bag? This collection, drawn from international sources, is a tribute to the ingenuity of gardeners everywhere. American contributors include Mark Catsby for the Illustrator, Ernest Wilson for Chinese Bulbs and Edwin Newton for garden clubs.
