This is a selection from the writings of Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) , known the world over for her garden designs. A well-known and much sought after garden designer during her lifetime, her strong views on garden plantings and color schemes have helped generations of gardeners to develop their own gardens. Today she is respected as much for her practical comments as she is for that sense of "heart and soul" which she brings to gardening matters. This revised edition of the anthology, now with over 150 color illustrations of the period and 160 duotones, takes us through the making and management of gardens, the practicalities and pleasures involved. 191 pages, beautifully bound; there is a bump to the top front corner. This is a wonderful book for your favorite gardener. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
