5.0 out of 5 stars book review, 16 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walled Kitchen Gardens (Shire Album) (Paperback)
excellent value, and although the book will not take too long to read as it is failry slim, it is a very interesting read into the background of walled gardens, and gives examples of gardens currently set up. Good mix of photos / text etc.

The Shire guides are well known for managing to pack a lot of easily readable information into a small booklet and this guide is no exception. Highly recommended to anyone interested in historical gardens

A very handy book to have...yes, it's not a big book, but it's packed with info, history etc. A book you can ick up time and again to refer to.

This review is from: Walled Kitchen Gardens (Shire Album) (Paperback)
The Shire Album series have a reputation for being relatively brief but managing to encapsulate the substance of a subject. This book does not disappoint in that respect. Susan Campbell, with a wealth of knowledge, informs us of the history and background of the walled kitchen garden. It is a book that you will not wish to put down and can be read in one sitting. It is well illustrated and my advice is to get a copy. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walled overview, 13 May 2010

This review is from: Walled Kitchen Gardens (Shire Album) (Paperback)
While this gives information which may be unknown or unavailable elsewhere, it is a somewhat disappointing book. This is probably because, as Susan Campbell states within it, there are very many other walled gardens which are simply either unrecorded or no longer heard about because the owners are either wishing to retain their privacy or, worst of all, the gardens have become derelict.
This is a subject close to my heart - I am a volunteer in a walled kitchen garden which is being brought back to some of its considerable former glory - and interestingly, there is absolutely no mention of 'my' garden. Why not, I would like to ask Ms Campbell?
For someone who is interested in the subject of walled gardens in general, this would be a good starting point - but it is not a definitive record of all walled gardens.
