From diggers and weeders to artists and colorists, from writers and dreamers to trend-setters, and from plantswomen to landscape designers, women have contributed much 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-humored 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.
