Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
One of the most popular plants in British gardens, pelargoniums have a long and extraordinary history. Here, Anne Wilkinson exposes the scandals, frauds, triumphs and disappointments associated with the plant, from its introduction to Europe in 1632 and the botanical disputes and rivalries of the 18th Century, to the competitive breeding and pursuit of new species by Victorian enthusiasts. The book also reveals the remarkable variety of scent and colour that made gardeners so passionate about pelargoniums.
