On The Point, author and master gardener Thomas Mickey talks about his book America’s Romance with the English Garden.   The book centers on the idea that in the late 1880’s Americans had a type of garden inspired by the media.  It includes his research over the past 20 years of public relations materials like brochures, catalogs, videos, and press releases to see what was being promoted besides the company’s product or services.
