Product description

Review

Dripping in gardening romance . . . [Raven] delights in Vita's chatty writing . . . Read it. You'll be delighted by its charm (English Garden)

Full of evocative details . . . elegant . . . Raven's book also quietly reveals the more complicated story behind the apparent ease of inherited wealth (Independent on Sunday)

[A] well-illustrated hommage, from an intimate perspective, to Vita and her gardening style . . . [Raven's] assessment of Vita's achievement is respectful but not subservient. Her clear-eyed confidence is contagious. (Spectator)

The exquisitely beautiful garden - now in the care of the National Trust - and Vita . . . are wonderful candidates for books; together, they are doubly engaging . . . Sarah Raven gives a vivid insight into the making of Sissinghurst (House & Garden)

Sarah Raven has a unique knowledge and appreciation of the garden and its creator . . . Her book paints a brilliant and captivating portrait of a great garden and its creators (Lady)

Without doubt the seminal work on the creation of Sissinghurst . . . delightful . . . impossible to put down . . . I cannot recommend it enough (Garden Design Journal)

The line between cherishing the best of the past and celebrating the future is a fine one, but Raven treads it with exemplary energy and tact in this lovely book, with its delightful black-and-white archive photographs of Vita and Harold, and its ravishing colour plates of the garden in its glory (Daily Mail)

A joy . . . [Sarah Raven's book is] about beauty, enjoyment, celebration of making - everything that good gardening ought to be. Its atmosphere is as consoling as sun-warmed brick. It is fastidiously illustrated by beautiful photographs old and new. Raven believes, justifiably, that a dynamic past can instruct the present and her book is a bid to see that Vita's thinking is not stilled . . . Best of all is the dashing abundance of plant ideas . . . Sarah Raven proves a most graceful chaperone, chiming in, amplifying . . . This book and Vita's ideas will inspire and, if you are even half a gardener, have you reaching for your gardening gloves with new purpose (Kate Kellaway Observer)
