Summary Book Review Cultivating and Preserving American Wild Flowers, 1890-1965 :

Download or read book Cultivating and Preserving American Wild Flowers, 1890-1965 written by John Thomas Fitzpatrick and published by . This book was released on 2006 with total page 1066 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Over the past three decades, the garden cultivation of native plants has become a dominant theme of landscape horticulture. It is considered a way to contribute to environmental health, species diversity, and human well-being. Focusing on the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, the dissertation considers the origins of these justifications and the rhetoric of leading advocates in the 1890-1965 period. American enthusiasm for cultivating native plants first developed between 1890 and 1917, when "wild gardens" were fashionable. Such gardens were promoted as a means of improving human physical and psychological health, rejecting ostentatious garden styles, and demonstrating one's national pride, aesthetic sensibility, and frugality. Around 1900, two influential organizations were formed to urge the in situ protection of wild flowers: the Society for the Protection of Native Plants and the Wild Flower Preservation Society of America. Native plants were considered "difficult" to cultivate but this changed when, around 1920, Edgar T. Wherry publicized the effects of soil pH on plant distribution. American gardeners came to believe that native plants would thrive if the soil pH was altered to suit them. Wherry and author Herbert Durand promoted the belief that garden cultivation was an effective means of ex situ preservation. From the early 1920s, when the protection organizations were reorganized, they advocated native plant gardening. Out of broad conservation concerns, a public commitment emerged for establishing permanent, extensive preserves for native plants. Most preserves were managed as natural-style gardens that were open to the public. Following the Second World War, advocates shifted their emphasis to the value of native plant gardens for homes. The development of several public native plant gardens is discussed. Case studies include the Local Flora Section at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Garden in the Woods, and Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve. Primary motives for advocating the cultivation of native plants were to preserve them from extinction, to provide Americans with refuges and nature experiences, and to demonstrate social distinction. Environmental health, a primary motive in recent decades, began to emerge in the 1960s.

Download or read book Where the Wildflowers Grow written by Leif Bersweden and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2022-06-23 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'The Wildflowers of Britain have a new champion.' - Lee Schofield, author of Wild Fell 'A heart-warming, fascination-inducing read from start to finish.' - Lucy Lapwing 'An extraordinary book... captivating in its joy for the natural world.' - Isabel Hardman 'When was the last time you stopped and noticed a wild plant?' An intriguing and timely exploration of the importance of Britain and Ireland's plant life. Leif Bersweden has always been fascinated by wild plants. From a young age, his afternoons were spent hunting for and cataloguing the plants in his local area. But it is a landscape that is fast disappearing. Climate change, habitat destruction and declining pollinator populations mean that the future for plant life looks bleaker than ever before. Many of us are also unable to identify, or even notice, the plants that grow around us. Now a botanist, Leif decides to go on a mission, to explore the plants that Britain and Ireland have to offer and to meet those who spend time searching for them. Over the course of a year, Leif goes on a journey around the UK and Ireland, highlighting the unique plants that grow there, their history and the threats that face them. His journey takes him from the Cornish coast to the pine forests of Scotland - even to the streets of London, proving that nature can be found in the most unexpected places. Along the way, Leif highlights the joy and positivity that can be found through understanding nature and why it is so desperately important to protect our wildflowers.
