Around a rustic thatched cottage, once owned by the village wheelwright, Wendy Lauderdale has created a perfect cottage garden. From a bare field and a tumbledown house, over ten years she has constructed an idyll. Plants grow in a dense profusion of scent and colour; in every corner of the garden successive waves of flowers and foliage come into play according to the seasons of the year. She tells the story, with easy-to-follow planting plans and hints and tips, of how, with the aid of her three cats and her husband as part-time help, she has created one of the most magical gardens in England.

In tracing the evolution of her garden in the Wiltshire countryside, Lauderdale offers a fulfilling reverie for anyone who has ever been enchanted by real or imagined cottage gardens. The phrase English garden usually brings to mind beguiling visions of stone cottages adorned with scented roses and surrounded by flower borders bursting with blooms--recorded here with exquisite color photographs of this particular small but classic garden setting, complete with thatched cottage. The chatty, informal style will be appreciated by gardeners interested in Lauderdale's design details and plant combinations. Her stories of successes and failures in both areas accompany helpful tips that should be of interest despite climatic differences. Set aside practicality, pour a cup of tea, and enjoy a lovely British sojourn. Alice Joyce
