A History of British Gardening

Georgian and Regency themes
Pineapples

Henry Telende in 1720 created a hotbed that enabled pineapples to be grown in Britain. By the 1750s pineapple pits were all the rage among the well-heeled gentry of English society.

Apples
William Forsyth published the Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit in 1802 . Fruit growing was becoming increasingly popular and books on practical fruit growing were selling fast. William Forsyth's Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit went through seven new editions between 1802 and 1824. The books lists 300 different apples and 100 pears that could be grown and - because of the development of greenhouses - exotic fruits, such as apricots and nectarines.
