There are masses of books on the history of gardening, but those on the gardeners themselves are few and far between. This is a fascinating little book, quite short but full of interesting information. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on women gardeners and training courses. If I had a criticism, it would be that sources aren't cited, so it can only be an introduction to the subject. However, it does have a short list for further reading, and a list of places to visit.

HASH(0x9d514894) out of 5 stars Excellent and abundantly illustrated. 16 Aug. 2015
By sem boundries - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent and beautifully illustrated contribution to the Shire Publication series. It is not a gardening book, per se, but a succinct description of the occupation of gardener in the Victorian era, including the first training schools for women gardeners.
