Publisher's summary : In the century between the accession of Elizabeth I and the restoration of Charles II, a horticultural revolution took place in England, making it a leading player in the European horticultural game. Ideas were exchanged across networks of gardeners, botanists, scholars, and courtiers, and the burgeoning vernacular book trade spread this new knowledge still furtheró reaching even the growing number of gardeners furnishing their more modest plots across the verdant nation and its young colonies in the Americas.
