There are masses of books on the history of gardening, but those on the gardeners themselves are few and far between. This is a fascinating little book, quite short but full of interesting information. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on women gardeners and training courses. If I had a criticism, it would be that sources aren't cited, so it can only be an introduction to the subject. However, it does have a short list for further reading, and a list of places to visit.
