Campbell presents the history of a grand English kitchen garden, albeit one conjured up from a pastiche of actual estates. Acknowledging the current popularity of a gardening style that combines ornamentals with edible plants, Campbell's richly descriptive book expounds on the decorative landscape capable of returning a bounty of fresh produce. In this way, the former idea of a kitchen garden connects with very modern concerns for eating in a healthy way, making the notion more apropos than ever. With exhaustive depth, Campbell uncovers classically inspired garden designs, picturesque glasshouses filled with tropical rarities, esoteric uses for plants, and, of course, the lives of gardeners responsible for maintaining their masters' estates. More than ample material to fascinate the garden lover who appreciates history with a British spin. Alice Joyce
