Review

‘One to get your hands on…packed with rarely seen images of her work’.

(Guardian)

‘Well written, thoroughly researched, beautifully produced and illustrated, it is full of insights - some quite unexpected’

(English Garden)

‘In a book for scholars and students alike, Miss J could have hoped for no better advocate’

(BBC Gardens Illustrated)

‘Marvellous book…well laid-out, engagingly written and beautifully illustrated…succinct, informative text’

(House and Garden)

'Full of interesting anecdotes’

(The Professional Gardener)

‘This handsome volume is a fine summation of her work to date. There have been several books on Jekyll over the years but this is certainly the most attractive yet.’

(Daily Telegraph)

‘Wonderful pictures’ - Gardening Books of the Year

(Evening Standard)

‘This gorgeous book will become the definitive volume of her gardening legacy’

(Good Book Guide)
