Early Canadian Gardening: 1827 Nursery Catalogue
This book is a history book for the gardener...heritage plants! We see what a nursery catalogue looked like in 1827 and Eileen breaks this down, so that we see how these were cultivated and used. Eileen has first hand experience as many of the plants mentioned, have been grown by her and used to create the drawings in the book.

It's an exciting book that takes us back to Upper Canada, gives us a glimpse of what it was like to farm at that time and helps guide gardeners with an interest in heritage gardening.
