No descriptions found.
The man responsible for introducing many of the plants to Britain in seventeenth-century was John Tradescant. Tradescant's only son John was his apprentice. This work tells the Tradescants' story - as gardeners, as collectors and above all as exemplars of an age that began in wonder and ended with the dawning of science.
