Bedding design by Matthew Ball

A Victorian Head Gardener would design annual displays of bedding. Matthew Ball’s drawing shows how he has calculated the number of plants required; he would then turn his team’s attention to grow thousands of plants in hothouses in order to be in flower at the same time.
