Краткое описание

Potted History: The Story of Plants in the Home.

Illustrated throughout with photos and large color reproductions of art and advertisements, this unusual gardening book explains not how to look after houseplants, but rather how, when, and why these plants came to be found in our homes. Social historian and noted roof gardener Catherine Horwood, author of Gardening Women: Their Stories from 1600 to the Present, reveals that potted plants are as subject to fashion as pieces of furniture. For the Victorians, the aspidistra in the front parlor was de rigueur, while in latter years it was the orchid in the designer loft. We see how Wedgwood created a market for special bulb pots and that some of Conran's early designs were for houseplant containers. Here too is the story of mignonette: a modest plant once prized in every home for its intoxicating scent—a scent now lost to us for ever. "A well-researched and intelligently written book, with appropriate and useful pictures—but also plenty to read. This is a book to recommend, both to those with an interest in growing plants indoors and under cover, and also those with an interest in social history."—Garden
