English: The Botanic Garden (1791) is a set of two poems, The Economy of Vegetation and The Loves of the Plants, by the British naturalist and poet Erasmus Darwin. The Economy of Vegetation celebrates technological innovation, scientific discovery and offers theories concerning contemporary scientific questions, such as the history of the cosmos. The more popular Loves of the Plants promotes, revises and illustrates Linnaeus's classification scheme for plants.
