Description
This anthology of practical, witty, and wise advice from more than 50 eminent gardeners presents extracts on subjects from water gardens to window boxes, lettuces to lupines, with insights into the patience and versatility required in negotiating the vagaries of soil, climate, the seasons, and the temperaments of the plants themselves. From the prose of Sir George Sitwell, evoking the sea maidens and gold-red fish that might lurk beneath the surface of a water basin, to Vita Sackville-West describing the glorious scents of thyme, and Anna Pavord recounting her tribulations with tulips, these literary gems are accompanied by Angie Lewin's sunny, elegantly stylized garden imagery.
