The Ingenious Mr Fairchild
Hay Festival 2000,
Thomas Fairchild shook the horticultural world by revaling sexual reproduction in plants. Leapman has written a biography dedicated to the life and work of a man who could not help interfering with natural design, and as a result has given us the huge variety of flowers in our parks and gardens today.
