Web Exhibit: “Gardening as Enterprise”

The Smithsonian Institution has launched a new exhibition titled "Cultivating America's Gardens," which will run in its physical form through August 2018. In addition to displaying many beautiful images, the online component of the exhibition has a section called "Gardening as Enterprise." The segment covers selling seeds and plant breeding and features many illustrations of seed catalogs and trade cards.
    Those with a special interest in this topic might also take a look at the Smithsonian's main seed and nursery catalog site, as well as its "American Seed and Nursery Industry" page, which provides bibliographies and biographical information about many in that industry.
