A picture of a fountain in the famous gardens of Sanssouci in Potsdam near Berlin

At all times and in all ages gardens have been amongst the
objects of the greatest interest to mankind, and the gardener's
art has contributed to the delight of all men in their time
Charles Dickens




Horticulture expresses the particular attitude of mind, spirit and fashion of historical periods and political areas of influence. The art and practice of gardening is an international, multicultural and peaceful heritage. People started very early to record their experience and krefnowledge of horticulture and shared it with others by writing books.Decorative Bindings
