Summary
The man responsible for introducing many of the plants to Britain in the 17th 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
