The Princess's Garden: Royal Intrigue And The Untold Story Of Kew

The British obsession with gardening has fascinating roots: the Empire and trade across the globe created a fascination with exotic new plants, and showed the power and reach of Britain in the early eighteenth century. At that time, national influence wasn’t measured by sporting success, musical or artistic influence. Instead it was expressed in the design of parks and gardens such as Kew and Stowe, and the style of these grand gardens was emulated first throughout Britain and then increasingly around the world. This is a story of three original thinkers, starting with the Georgian prince whose patronage made it all possible.
