Product description

Review

A glorious and fertile compendium. (INDEPENDENT)

Boldly editied, the equivalent of a well-planted border with not a gap of bare earth, all season-colour interest, and no visible pea-sticks. (Lynne Truss, SUNDAY TIMES)

Kellaway's intelligent and tender book enlarges the sense of human possibility. (OBSERVER)

Green thoughts from Gertrude Jekyll to Germaine Greer- a delight for lovers of gardening and literature. (WOMAN AND HOME)

Synopsis

From diggers and weeders, to artists and colourists, writers and dreamers to trend-setters, plantswomen to landscape designers, women have contributed to the world of gardening and gardens. Here Deborah Kellaway, author of The Making of an English Country Garden and Favourite Flowers , has collected extracts from the 18th century to the present day, to create a book that is replete with anecdotes and good-humoured advice. Colette, Margery Fish, Germaine Greer, Eleanor Sinclair Rohde, Vita Sackville-West, Rosemary Verey, Edith Wharton and Dorothy Wordsworth are some of the writers represented in this book.
