Product Description

Review

"'Forget Alan Titchmarsh - it's the Tradescants of Jennifer Potter's Strange Blooms we should really salute... Beautifully produced and meticulously researched.' Andrea Wulf, Observer 'A tour de force... We owe Potter a huge debt of gratitude for the tireless research and sifting of evidence that have allowed the Tradescants and their great legacy to emerge so clearly at last.' Jenny Uglow, Sunday Times 'The Renaissance delight in the sheer protean variety of stuff in the world has met its ideal presenter in Jennifer Potter's open pleasure in details.' Jane Stevenson, Daily Telegraph 'Masterly... Jennifer Potter's achievement in Strange Blooms is to have breathed life back into the Tradescant name.' Alexander Urquhart, TLS"

Because the Tradescants were so early in Botanical explorations, I found the old style language hard to overcome and had to abandon the book after 3 very long chapters. I'm sorry I couldn't stick with it but can live without it.
