Herbs, Horticulture and Health: Franklin and Botany

Although not a serious gardener himself, Benjamin Franklin was influential in developing horticulture in America.


Although not a serious gardener himself, Benjamin Franklin was influential in developing horticulture in America. He spent a number of years in Paris, and arranged an exchange of roots and seeds between French and American gardeners, promoting various European plants for their economic value. These included medicinal rhubarb, the European yellow willow, used to make baskets, and the cabbage turnip, which remains edible for long periods.
