SamenvattingWhat risks did the early plant collectors take to bring us the plants we know and love. Who found what and where? And How similar are their finds to the plants we grow today? Christian Lamb has been to extraordinary lengths to discover and subsequently to grow many of the original species in her fascinating Cornish garden. Christian's living plant museum is recorded in this book, which Sir Roy Strong descibes as True character, very funny and idiosyncratic writes Sir Roy Strong about this lively and richly illustrated book. T he central theme is all about the special plants that Christian Lamb grows in her small garden in Cornwall and which she calls her 'living plant museum'. The plants are mostly chosen for their fascinating and colourful history. Christian writes about the original collectors who found these treasures - the amazing challenges they faced bringing them back to these shores - with many quotes from diaries and personal writings which bring her hero plantaholics to life. Christian also gaily recounts her own intrepid adventures following in the steps of the early collectors - all the more inspiring since Christian is a spry octogenerian, who might by now have been expected to have hung up her spade.
