Deborah Kellaway’s meticulously edited collection of garden writing is at once a literary delight, a visual pleasure and an inspiring and practical companion full of good-humoured advice. The expertise, toil and creativity of women gardeners throughout the last century is celebrated in this comprehensive anthology, featuring outstanding horticultural writing and illustrated throughout by colour photographs and paintings of the gardens and gardeners. From diggers and weeders to plantswomen and landscape designers, this delightful book is now available in a new paperback edition and is an invaluable reference for all gardeners – from the truly green-fingered to those of the armchair variety.


Beautifully edited, the equivalent of a well-planted border with not a gap of bare earth, all-season-colour interest and no visible pea-sticks
