Product description

About the Author

Jessie Sheeler was brought up in Edinburgh and read Classics at Edinburgh University. In the early 1960s, working with Ian Hamilton Finlay, she co-founded the Wild Hawthorn Press and its poetry magazine Poor. Old. Tired. Horse. After various teaching jobs and a spell as an assistant in day care centres in New York, she settled with her family in Hampshire where she became Head of Classics at the co-educational boarding school Bedales. She now lives in Scotland on the Solway coast, teaching Latin and desperately trying to keep two and a half acres of unruly garden under control.

As well as being a distinguished garden photographer – he holds the Royal Horticultural Society's Gold Medal for photography – Andrew Lawson is a painter, a passionate and knowledgeable gardener, and author of several successful gardening books.
