The author shares her philosophy of gardening, shows examples of garden designs for courtyards, perennial borders, and kitchen and pool gardens, and includes garden care advice.From Booklist:
Tintinhull is a splendid garden, among the very loveliest of England's National Trust properties. Hobhouse, perhaps the most celebrated gardening designer and writer at work today, has been the resident expert there for over a decade. While leading readers on a remarkable tour of Tintinhull's garden "rooms" and renowned flower borders, Hobhouse shares her personal design philosophy and passes along plenty of practical horticultural advice. But the book's most essential counsel is found in 17 garden clans showing favored plants and plant combinations. Andrew Lawson's exquisite photography is yet another asset, revealing the beauty of changing seasonal displays, and portraying Hobhouse at work as she prunes, stakes, and generally cares for these magnificent gardens.
