I was very pleased with this collection of Sir Roy Strong's garden stories. Sir Roy is at the front of garden design history and I was delighted to read about his own trials and tribulations in gardening. He seems most fortunate to have met so many great gardeners and have those discussions that gardeners have. As gardeners we learn from our own mistakes, from talking to experienced gardeners and from reading good books; this is one of those good books.
If you like gardens, the country and listening to someone worthwhile with a host of easy flowing thoughts and reminiscences - you will love this book. Roy Strong has a style which informs and entertains and never bores. A book to read to cheer. A book to leave in a guest room. A country classic.
