    A horticultural revolution took place in England during the late 16th and 17th centuries, as gardeners, botanists, scholars and courtiers exchanged the latest ideas, and the growing book trade spread them to a wide audience of creators of more modest plots as far away as the new colonies in the Americas. This book charts these developments through the experiences of enthusiasts such as the Tradescants, Francis Bacon and John Evelyn, and the stories of the kitchen and flower gardens of the great estates.
