Editorial Reviews


'This wonderful collection of horticultural writings from classical authors such as Palladius, Pliny and, of course, Virgil offers much more than tongue-twisting titles for hardy perennials.' - BBC History Magazine

'This is a book which will rest well on the shelves of teachers and their school library. It complements previous archaeological works on the design of gardens and their role in the domestic economy by presenting us with a vivid translation of the ancient Romans' own experts.' - The Journal of Classics Teaching

'The [book] can be exciting, entertaining, or aggravating, but [is] always
informative ...  a valuable addition to ancient garden studies and to the study of the interaction between Roman culture and environment
.' - BMCR
