This book has much essential gardening information found in other books on my bookshelf, but the author delivers it with a rare humor and style without any sugar-coating. I find them beautiful and thought provoking. I have spent many happy hours in gardens in England and Ireland and this book is a lovely reminder of those times. More inexperienced gardeners may wish, however, to have the names provided for the plants which have been photographed. The chapter on kitchen gardens is nicely succinct and useful. 2 people found this helpful.
