Take me to the archived exhibition.

In April 1969, with a grant from the Unidel Foundation, the University of Delaware Library acquired a collection consisting of 193 titles relating to the history of American horticulture. This modest group of books, periodicals, trade and seed catalogs formed the core of the Unidel Collection of the History of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, which over the last two decades has been developed into a collection of remarkable depth. The purpose of Suitable for Cultivation: Horticultural Collections at the University of Delaware Library is to serve as a guide to the collections, illustrating their depth and broad scholarly potential.

This exhibition was on display in the Special Collections Gallery from June-September, 1990.
