Review

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 * 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 * Masterly... Jennifer Potter's achievement in Strange Blooms is to have breathed life back into the Tradescant name. -- Alexander Urquhart * TLS *
