Book Description

Chronicling the relationship between British people and their gardens, from 1856 to the present day


"The Guardian"'s relationship with gardens and gardening is recorded throughout its archival history: the plant hunters and collectors, such as 'China' Wilson and the Veitches, who brought seeds and specimens from every corner of the world, the designers who set their mark on gardening styles from Capability Brown to Gertrude Jekyll and the long line of impressive women gardeners who followed - Margery Fish, Vita Sackville-West, Beth Chatto, Penelope Hobhouse. And, of course, the "Guardian"'s own stellar garden columnist for so many years, Christopher Lloyd, writing from his beloved Great Dixter. Gardens - royal or private, walled or cottage, stately, wild, or town plot - each has added to our fascination and dedication to the growing garden. History is unearthed through the practice of gardening: in the restoration of a garden such as Heligan, the great glasshouses erected at Chatsworth, Kew and the Chelsea Physic Garden protect our heritage, while the Eden project expands horizons, and 'Digging for Victory' altered town - and cityscapes for vegetable growing.
