What does your garden have in common with Giverny, the Desert Botanical, Brooklyn Botanical, and Alcazar Gardens of Seville Spain? Flower pots! Call them what you choose—flower pots, plant pots, containers, or tubs—pots brought our garden plants from all over the world to our own little spot of earth. The pots we find in our gardens today are the result of the evolution of available materials for making pots, plant science, and style. “Potting up Plants” is an illustrated look back into the history of flower pots, the changing fashions, and garden wisdom provided by these vessels. Beautiful images from gardens of North America, Europe, New Zealand, Morroco, and Australia illustrate the ideas.
