Miscellanées de mon jardin
Anne-France Dautheville

What are the origins of gardens? Why did Eve taste the apple? How did tomatoes wind up in our kitchen gardens? Who invented pruning shears? What are the legends behind narcissus, plane trees, St. John’s wort and more? Where can you find a four-leaf clover? What good do garden insects do? How long can a seed lie dormant before sprouting?

This enjoyable little book assembles some one hundred and fifty entertaining chronicles, anecdotes and legends about gardens. Serious or playful, scientific or practical, useful or frivolous – but always poetical, these surprising stories invite us on journeys and can be opened at random.

The illustrations and lively layout help make reading this book a pure pleasure.

Read can dip into this surprising collection of curiosities on a whim, flitting from one surprising tidbit to the next.
