Bringing to life the science and adventure of eighteenth-century plant collecting, 'The Brother Gardeners' is the story of how six men created the modern garden and changed the horticultural world in the process. It is a story of a garden revolution that began in America. In 1733, colonial farmer John Bartram shipped two boxes of precious American plants and seeds to Peter Collinson in London. Around these men formed the nucleus of a botany movement, which included famous Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, Philip Miller, Joseph Banks and David Solander (two botanist explorers, who scoured the globe for plant life aboard Captain Cook's Endeavor). As they cultivated exotic blooms from around the world, they helped make Britain an epicenter of horticultural and botanical expertise.
