About this title


Lavishly illustrated, THE GARDEN MAKERS profiles more than seventy gardeners, profesional and amateur, from Frederick Law Olmsted to Vita Sackville-West

From Library Journal:

There are so few collective biographies of garden designers that this volume definitely fills a gap. Seventy garden designers, both amateur and professional, are reviewed in profiles averaging two pages each and including illustrated examples of works that have influenced the evolution of landscape and garden design. The book covers 1600 to the present and focuses mostly on British and American designers. The influences of one designer upon another (e.g., Frederick Law Olmsted's chance meeting with A.J. Downing, which changed his career) and of Great Britain and the United States upon each other (e.g., John Bartram's and David Douglas's plant collecting in America and Thomas Jefferson's visit to Europe) are also explored. Each designer's publications are also listed. Plumptre's previous garden history books are still popular, and this new title will be an attractive and useful addition for larger horticultural collections.
