Planting Paradise: Cultivating the Garden.
Charts the role of the garden from the beginning of the sixteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century.
In this age of discovery, when the world was being explored as never before, gardening took on new dimensions. Gardens had long been associated with Paradise and while this notion persisted, the Renaissance belief in direct observation of nature offered an alternative way of thinking and cleared the way for the scientific approach of the Enlightenment.
