It is impossible today to stroll through a garden center or read a seed catalog without feeling the influence of six eighteenth-century men whose unbridled enthusiasm for the natural world revolutionized the way people would forever after relate to plants and gardening.
...Joseph Banks, John Bartram, Peter Collinson, Carl Linnaeus, Phillip Miller and Daniel Solander were independently pursuing individual passions for new garden plants and botanical knowledge, a mutual obsession that eventually brought them into contact with each other.
This is their story and that of the beginning of gardening in America.
