Christian Lamb, distinguished plantswoman and garden historian, writes in her introduction It so happens that I 'collect' botanic gardens . . . this book is a nebulous collection of a few chosen botanic gardens from the vast array available--the stars in their spheres . . . and the remarkable array of the often learned and entrepreneurial characters that created them.
