"Penelope Hobhouse's book is festooned with grand ideas. In Plants in Garden History, Hobhouse addresses design theory and the succession of styles, but her real concern is at ground level, among the foliage and inflorescences of the plants themselves. As a result, Plants in Garden History is an unusually informative and accessible history for practicing gardeners."Reseña del editor:
How did exotic, oriental plants find their way into the borders of English gardens? Penelope Hobhouse - plantswoman, garden designer and authority on historic gardens - is uniquely qualified to shed new light on the absorbing history of gardens from ancient Egypt to the twentieth century. This is the definitive book on the history of gardens and gardening which describes the evolution of the Western model and explains the various historical factors which have created the modern idea of gardening as both art form and popular pastime. In her magnificent survey of the rich heritage of Western gardening, Penelope Hobhouse's engrossing text is perfectly complemented by an unsurpassable collection of beautiful illustrations that range from the earliest Egyptian tomb painting to some of today's best garden photography. Great care has been taken in the design of the book, making it both structured and accessible. 'Plants in Garden History' is a classic work that will be referred to for many years to come.
