Product description

Review

'An admirable attempt to recapitulate the recent past of gardening in Britain'
-- Historic Gardens Review

'An endearing chronicle of a lost age'
-- The Sunday Times

'Beautifully packaged... This charming book won a surprise but well-deserved gong at the 2007 Garden Writers' Guild Awards... fabulous' -- The Sunday Telegraph

'In Finnis's photographs...(the) values and fashions which she saw through her lens now seem as dead as the dodo, lending these pictures a charming, nostalgic melancholy.' -- The World of Interiors

'It's fascinating and sometimes hilarious....' -- The Times

'One of our favourites of the year... fascinating and charming'
-- BBC Gardeners' World

'Small but perfectly formed, this is the record of the golden age of British gardening through the eyes of Valerie Finnis, who photographed the nation's greenest fingers with warmth and wit...' -- The Independent

Winner of the Enthusiast's Book of the Year 2007 --Garden Writer's Guild

Eccentric, wise and beautiful faces peer out at us from a different age. The flowers, gardens and fashion are all
fabulous. --The Edible Garden

From the Publisher

Winner of the Garden Writer's Guild Enthusiast's Book of the Year 2007. Valerie Finnis, one of Britain's best-loved and most widely known horticulturalists, was also a talented photographer. This delightful book features a spectacular cast of characters at home in their gardens, weeding, inspecting watering and standing proudly by their plants, wearing the clothes and fashions of the day, epitomizing life and society in the second half of the twentieth century.
