Product Description

Review

'Kasia Boddy's enchanting cultural history of the geranium traces our changing attitude to the flower . . . [she] does a wonderful job of selecting the most delicious literary cuttings for her book on the lovable plant and its place in our culture.' --- Daily Telegraph

'Boddy traces the geranium from its African birthplace to its ubiquitous presence in Western art, literature, culture, and, of course, gardens. She is at her best when describing the lowly plant's cultural significance. A rose may always be a rose, but in Boddy's far-ranging survey, the geranium is, at different times, a pregnant symbol, a potent talisman, a Proustian prompt, and an agent of social reform.' --- Publishers' Weekly

I enjoyed browsing through this book before I gave it to my mum. I found it beautifully presented and interesting and I don't particularly like geraniums! My mum seems to have enjoyed it too.

This book is full of interesting information and illustrations but it is not, repeat not, an exhaustive botanical treatment or a growing guide.
