Description

Madison’s Cabbages to Kennedy’s Roses – How the White House Grounds Have Grown with America

by Marta McDowell

“A Story of Red, White, and Green”. From George Washington’s obsession with plants and seed collecting to Michelle Obama’s focus on edibles, All The Presidents' Gardens reveals how the story of the garden is also the story of our country. Far more than just an account of Lincoln’s goats, Ike’s putting green, and Kennedy’s roses, All the Presidents' Gardens delves into the captivating events that have shaped our national consciousness.

  • Fully illustrated with new and historical photographs and art.
  • Hardcover, 336 pages

Note: Ms. McDowell is currently working on a book about Laura Ingalls Wilder (“Little House on the Prairie”), who bought the famous Rocky Ridge Farm in Mansfield, MO in 1894. There, 800 Ben Davis and Missouri Pippin apple trees — all bought from Stark Bro’s Nurseries & Orchards Co. — had been planted by the previous owner. There are many references to pies made from these apples in Wilder’s famous books.
