Amschel von Rothschild (1773-1855) was the first of his family to develop a love of gardening.
Beginning with a small window box, Amschel ended up with a large suburban park. His passion took hold on the family, proving a more enduring interest than banking for many. Rothschild parks and gardens spread across Europe, mixing formal design with exuberant planting of trees and flowers. A love of exotic plants necessitated the building of huge heated greenhouses, allowing skilled Rothschild horticulturalists to create new hybrids, many named after the family.
