9781861057716: The Gardener's Companion (A Think Book)

For anyone who has ever put on a pair of gloves, picked up a shovel, and gone into a garden in search of flowers, beauty, and inspiration, just open this book. You'll soon find out why leaves change color, who invented the flame-throwing weeder, why the Victorians prevented women from owning orchids, what happened when David Niven found Greta Garbo swimming naked in a pool, what Saffron Walden is famous for, and where the practice of kissing under mistletoe originated. All that, and over 500 more gardening gobbets, botanical amusements, and horticultural ha-has make this book a must for any garden-lover.

From the Publisher:

Ever wonder what happens to the 36,000 tennis balls used at the annual Wimbledon championships? Or what was on the menu at Henry IV’s coronation? Would you like to know how to master the Japanese art of packing a rucksack? Or how to say hello in 20 different languages? The delightfully eclectic, exceedingly collectable volumes in the Companion Series are bursting with useful trivia and quirky facts to amuse and amaze. Pleasingly designed, eminently browsable, downright addictive.
