Content

This is a selection of 200 of the best articles and other writings by Gertrude Jekyll, who 'changed the face of England more than any save the Creator himself and, perhaps, Capability Brown'. 
Although Miss Jekyll designed around 400 gardens, none remains as she intended and few exist today in any recognizable form.
Her enduring influence has been achieved not through her spade but through her pen.
She published 15 books and contributed well over a thousand articles, notes and letters to numerous magazines and newspapers.
But although the books are well known, until now, all but a handful of her other writings have been accessible only to scholars – a situation that this selection redresses.
This book covers themes that include garden planning, wild and woodland gardening, climbing plants, water gardening and garden ornament, and includes selected articles.
This is a gem of garden writing that all who are interested in Jekyll, planting and design will be delighted to discover.

  •     If you are into garden history this is a great book, reads like looking over the shoulder of Gertrude Jekyll, such fun...
