A few highlights:
• Read a feature on a new LALH book about Henry Shaw, a Victorian gentleman who created a world-famous botanical garden in St. Louis in the mid-nineteenth century and then turned his horticultural skills (and his fortune) to making Tower Grove Park. Carol Grove’s fascinating text is filled with insights—about “botanizing” and American culture, the role of plant hunters at the frontier, and the relationship between the gardenesque and the picturesque.
• Preservation profiles in this year’s VIEW bring you news of activities at the Missouri Botanical Garden and Tower Grove Park, the story of a Fletcher Steele garden in Milton, Massachusetts, recently saved from development, and the discovery of a Jens Jensen landscape in Indianapolis.
