    The wife and husband team of Anne Scott-James and Osbert Lancaster have produced a really lovely book, easy to read, light in style and a pleasure to the eye.

    Their history of gardening begins in Roman times and proceeds through, monastic gardens, Tudor and Jacobean, French, Dutch with tulipmania prevalent, high Victorian, cottage gardens and many others before finishing with the patio garden, the type close to my heart as that is what I have!

    Interspersed with the garden design are tales of the botanists who collected specimens and a bibliographical tour through the genre of gardening literature.

    It is a veritable paradise for the plantsman and an engrossing read even for the non-gardener such as myself.

    It is snowing a blizzard out there and seeing as I'm not in the shop and most jobbies are up-to-date(ish) here I'll set an early fire and settle down on the settee with this and my fidgety dog.

    Spring is coming, honest! - in just eight to twelve weeks we shall be in a rainbow, which is always a delight after the chromophobic winter months.

  3. Hilary West says:

    A very readable and succinct account of the British garden throughout the ages. With delightful cartoons by Osbert Lancaster they provided an ideal accompaniment to the text. To go down this particular garden path was full of blossoming bowers, scented delights and magnificent colours.
