Product description

Review

"The book charts gardening right up to the present day, looking at the spike in demand for allotments and the current boom in naturalistic gardening. This isn’t a dry historical reference book, it’s filled with interesting anecdotes and asides that bring all the eras to life" (Rachael Funnell English Garden)

"Uglow's account of a national obsession is a delight from beginning to end" (The Observer)

"This book will be a joy for any gardener" (The Independent)

"The biographer of Gaskell and Hogarth now takes us into the garden, where plants glow and miniature landscapes unfold at the touch of her easy prose" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Enchanting, stirringly evocative and fascinating" (Daily Mail)
