Excellent detail and well-written,
This review is from: The Story of Gardening (Paperback)
This is an excellent guide to garden history. It is laid out well, moving through different periods of history, with a good amount of detail for each, and is a good starting point for any period that you may wish to study in more detail. Penelope Hobhouse has a very subtle but rich writing style which makes it a pleasure to read.
