    1. This was a fascinating and accessible book I learned so much from it, I don t know where to begin Except maybe to say that Fuchsia is NOT pronounced Fyou sha, oh no It should be pronounced FOOKS ia after our dear Mr Fuchs I can hardly wait to try that out on the garden store clerk come spring.This sweeping history of gardening and botany in the 18th century is compulsively readable and full of interesting trivia and tidbits about famous gardeners and botanists Some of whom I d actually heard of. [...]


    2. Gli inglesi prendono la botanica molto seriamente e Andrea Wulf racconta la loro storia in modo piacevolissimo.Si parte dai primi giardini e dai primi ibridi creati dall uomo, che avrebbero potuto essere condannati per eresia si pensava che i fiori e le piante si riproducessero senza attivit sessuale, per cui far nascere un nuovo fiore manipolando polline, stami e pistilli era azzardato Alla fine anche i grandi botanici fanno come i bambini mentono l ho trovato in giardino, l ho mica fatto io E [...]


    3. What a pleasure this book was for me It worked on me like a tonic I get spring fever every year about this time and I guess I ve already seen all the how to garden books at our library cos none of them seem to tell me anything new any I can still hear my 3rd grade teacher s words reverberating in my head, Yes dear, but if you would only APPLY what you learn So this book came along at the perfect time for me I want to eat, sleep, and talk of nothing but gardening, I love history and always like t [...]


    4. A well researched and wonderfully written book about the beginnings of modern botany, the origins of the English style garden, the export of American plants to Europe, and the personalities of the men who made all these things happen, The Brother Gardeners is a fascinating read and a rich reference book In a time when everyone who has ever planted a petunia feels qualified to write a gardening book, it is refreshing to find a scholarly book based on thorough research that is not only readable an [...]


    5. A book I found by accident, and absolutely loved it It covers, history, exploration, botany and the rise of gardening Wulf captures perfectly the 18th century, not only the wonderful characters, but descriptions too The Thames is described as A forest of masts James Cook s voyages are brought to life along with the early English colonies in America.I m actually going to read it again.


    6. I thoroughly enjoyed this historical book that traces the English obsession with gardening through the 18th century This book brought together so many random pieces of historical and botanical information I have learned in the past and solidly rooted them in the lives of significant individuals who revolutionized our understanding of the plant world We learn about Fairchild who creates the first hybrid Collinson and Bartram who share information and plants across the ocean Linnaeus who classifie [...]


    7. Peter Collinson era un quacchero aristocratico che commerciava tessuti con l America attraverso delle navi Approfittava di questi traffici per farsi portare delle piante spesso sconosciute in Inghilterra.Il bonario John Barthram aveva origini pi umili, ma era riuscito a diventare proprietario di una fattoria a Filadelfia Si era preso l impegno d inviare al botanico semi e piante vive Quando divenne pi competente la sua fama crebbe e con essa le spedizioni.Mentre il rapporto tra i due si rinforza [...]


    8. If you ve ever wondered where the plants in your garden come from, you couldn t do better than to begin your researches with The Brother Gardeners, as I did This beautiful book was a joy to read, and I learned so much It is meticulously researched, and the writing is a model of clarity I loved every word, and will be referring back to it for many years to come Highly recommended, and I guarantee I shall be working my way through Andrea Wulf s other books.


    9. Exactly as the back cover promises Bringing to life the science and adventure of eighteenth century plant collecting, this is the story of how six men created the modern garden and changed the horticultural world in the process The book started out a bit too slowly for me but later on it got interesting I enjoyed reading about Carl Linnaeus s life in Uppsala, Sweden, the best I still like him even though he was a bit full of himself I also enjoyed Wulf quoting Linnaeus When I observe the fate o [...]


    10. I liked this book a lot, but would have loved it if it had undergone a little better editing The transformation of English gardening, the rise of England as the garden center of the world, the beginning of the global trade in plants, the role John Bartram of Philadelphia played in Americanizing the English landscape these are fascinating stories But you have to slog through some less than compelling prose to get them the story telling is sometimes repetitive, sometimes gets you lost,, sometimes [...]


    11. Let s say three and a half stars, but I ll round it up This is a nicely done history of botany and the birth of popular gardening in eighteenth century England Wulf makes crisp portraits of Linnaeus and Joseph Banks but mostly focuses on the decades long friendship and correspondence between Pennsylvania s John Bartram and Peter Collinson in London It was largely through the seed and plant boxes dispatched by Bartram to Collinson that the English landscape and the idea of the English garden was [...]


    12. A surprising book about how the British did not become the West s most obsessive gardeners until they were able to get plants from their American colonies, especially Pennsylvania They got them through the correspondence of an English merchant, Collinson, and an American farmer, John Bartram Initially a man of modest social stature, Bartram s botanical interests led to renown and an important role in Pennsylvania s intellectual life He was friends with Ben Franklin and gave Oswego tea its Englis [...]


    13. Great entertaining read with lots of history thrown into the mix on the lives of two men , one in colonial America and the other in England True Gardeners tend to be an obsessive lot so the movement of seeds and plants from America to England was not an easy task in that Era, however these two kept at the project for many years Traveling around the U.K one can see the results of their endeavors along with many others who brought back vast numbers of plants and trees from the Empire to the temper [...]


    14. Wulf tells how British gardening evolved in the eighteenth century under the guidance of a network of botanists and horticulturists Thomas Fairchild, Peter Collinson, William Bartram, Philip Miller, Linnaeus, Daniel Solander, and Sir Joseph Banks , many of whom were fascinated by plants from abroad and changed the British landscape by finding and importing plants from every continent Wulf s glossary table of imports is particularly useful.


    15. Mi piaciuto tantissimo la storia della botanica raccontata in modo divertente e interessante, una serie di aneddoti e curiosit collegati anche alla storie e alla geografia Lo consigli anche ai non appassionati di giardinaggio


    16. This is an excellent addition and introduction to the botanical phenomena of the 18th century and how one American was at the forefront of what would become a craze.


    17. Andrea, I m inviting you to my imaginary dinner of fabulous women biographers You ve joined an elite group Jenny Uglow, Rebecca Meade, Debby Applegate, Jean Strouse, Molly Peacock and Donna M Lucey, to name a perfect dinner table full.While your bio of Alexander von Humbolt was groundbreaking, here you re treading on familiar ground Eighteenth century England has been parsed and studied from so many angles art, literature, politics, empire but you found a a new lens, the rage for gardening that [...]


    18. I got interested in gardening through English history so this was a perfect read for me What a small, amazing world it once was where this small group of men changed the physical landscape of their era We are surrounded by what they discovered and shared And every one of us who gardens obsessively today completely understands their story with our heads and our hearts.


    19. Most people, including me, would expect a scholarly presentation of the history of botany and gardening to be stuffy and boring So wrong This volume would be of interest to anyone who enjoys gardening Among many informative items, I learned that the rudbecia which blooms in my garden dates back to the 1700 s.


    20. If you love gardening and history this book is for you Very interesting historical account of how gardens of today came to be At times it read like a textbook but I still found it to be an informative read





    21. Andrea Wulf is simply a brilliant writer, and this volume was as well researched and written as her other books Without exaggerating personalities or events, she tells a wonderful, historical story.


    22. What a surprise I expected a dry read not so I ve pushed the book on numerous gardening friends but anyone with an environmental or history bent should enjoy it as well.A solid 5 stars see below especially unusual for being in the non fiction category Well crafted AND I learned so much I attended an author talk by Wulf focusing on a different book Founding Gardeners and had this in my TBR pile for over a year Wish I hadn t waited so long An explanation of my star rating 5 Truly cream of the crop [...]


    23. I really enjoyed this book When I started gardening, I learned about perennials from the extensive listings in the White Flower Farm catalog I remember hiking in Glacier Natl park and being astonished that I recognized so many of the wild flowers, relatives of the ones I knew from the cultivars in the catalog Now I know why The much celebrated English garden was based on plants collected in North America in the 18th century I loved reading another account of the Chelsea physic garden which I had [...]


    24. Currently reading, and finding this book interesting and informative The author at times seems to be swept up in the personal hyperbolic style of the historic persons she is writing about rather than giving us a objective version of events Unfortunately, I am also finding a number of erroneous factoids that would seem to represent sloppy or harried research Example just read in the first footnote of chapter 3, the author mentions that When Carl Linnaeus was knighted in 1761 antedated 1757 he ch [...]


    25. Il libro molto bello La ricostruzione storica delle vicende legate alla passione tutta inglese per il giardinaggio e le piante esotiche, che si intreccia con la loro visione del mondo e la loro storia, veramente accurata e appassionante Migliaia di piante hanno fatto letteralmente il giro del mondo per la gioia sia degli appassionati, che avevano il piacere della scoperta e del collezionismo, che dei commercianti che ne traevano anche un buon profitto Se devo trovare un difetto nell opera l ecce [...]


    26. Este livro relata como seis bot nicos do s c XVIII revolucionaram o mundo bot nico e da jardinagem dedicando as suas vidas ao estudo das plantas e procura de novas plantas por todo o mundo, viajando, colhendo e estudando novos exemplares que eram trazidos das col nias brit nicas Mas este livro muito mais do que isso Para al m da sua import ncia no mundo bot nico, estes seis homens, Peter Collinson, John Bartram, Philip Miller, Carl Linnaeus, Daniel Solander and Joseph Banks tiveram as suas vidas [...]


    27. Questo libro davvero fantastico e mi piaciuto tantissimo Si presenta come un saggio su come e quando nata la botanica e la passione smodata degli inglese per i giardini, ma sembra un romanzo.E evidente, anche dalle numerosi fonti citate, che l autrice si documentata molto per scrivere questo libro e il risultato entusiasmante Ogni vicenda, storica o scientifica, viene narrata dal punto di vista dei protagonisti, descritti con cura nella loro passione per la botanica e nelle loro manie e credetem [...]
