Flashback FridayPosted: April 8, 2016
The main goal of plants is to reproduce and spread as far as they can. They do this by seeds, sending shoots underground, and with help from animals. The biggest helper of all has been humans. We have transported and transplanted vegetation all over the world either because we wanted to eat the plant or it was just pretty.
Today’s flashback is about John Bartram. He is responsible for sending boat loads of plants to England and Europe. He is a very interesting man with ideas ahead of his time. The biography that is highlighted in the post is a great read.
Take a look at Crazy About John.
