About the Author

Reviews
Stephen Anderton pays homage to gardeners throughout history in this wonderfully illustrated book. The 40 biographies, which cover 500 years of gardening around the world, plow cleanly through the lives and work of each gardener. He includes contextual cross-references and, before each biography, lists events from the gardeners' birth and death years. Anderton's style, erudite and whimsical, delightfully dominates. The nearly 250 illustrations balance his words in a sprightly and convivial marriage.
From this compilation of great gardeners, modern landscape architects and designers and home gardeners can learn some of the history and development of their art and craft.
