Beschreibung

One January morning in 1734, cloth merchant Peter Collinson hurried down to the docks at London's Custom House to collect cargo just arrived from John Bartram in the American colonies. But it was not bales of cotton that awaited him, but plants and seeds. Set against the backdrop of the emerging empire and the uncharted world beyond, "The Brother Gardeners" tells the story how Britain became a nation of gardeners.
