Early version of the Favretti's later guide to period gardening. They were some of the first to advocate for authentic period gardening, and their books are the basic texts for anyone interested. Includes histories of American gardens from the early 1600's through 1900, and plant lists for each period. Short, easy to read, and full of info.
