Summary
Mickey (Professor Emeritus, communications, Bridgewater State University) explains the impact of British seed and nursery catalogs marketed to middle-class American gardeners in the mid to late 19th century. The book begins with background on the English influence on landscapes in the colonial era, then offers a short history of the 19th-century seed and nursery industries in America. Catalog themes, rose cultivation, and landscape design according to the catalogs are some other subjects explored. Color historical illustrations and contemporary photos are featured throughout.
