Description
From the Roman goddess Flora to today's gardeners at Kew, women have always gardened, notes historian Catherine Horwood—even if the acclaim for their contributions has been a bit thin on the ground. Horwood (a prize-winning gardener in her own right) here shares the stories of more than 200 women involved with garden design, plant collecting, flower arranging, botanical art, garden writing, and education. We meet Thomasin Tunstall, sending her hellebores to John Parkinson for his new plot in Covent Garden in 1620; Lady Mary Coke, designing her Notting Hill House garden during George III's reign; and the Victorian widow who brought to England a Euphorbia in her hat box—the variety now known as Mrs. Robb's Bonnet.

"Women ... are everywhere in gardening history. In gathering their stories and describing their influences and achievements Horwood has done a terrific, pioneering job. Beautifully structured and cogently written, [this book is] rich, full, and lasting as potpourri. Neither gardens, nor women, will seem quite the same again."—Times (London)
