Review

"a delightful and enlightening exploration of British literature and horticulture."

"Bennett is an excellent guide leading you to all the right places and weaving biography with garden tales.  Like all good gardening books it leaves you wanting to explore the gardens for yourself, in this case with some favourite novels clutched firmly in hand."
