This guide to gardening in the National Trust properties of England discusses planting themes and garden features in these extensive, historical gardens and presents plans and drawings of detailed planting areas. Interviews with head gardeners emphasize the practical aspects of renovation and maintenance. Garden features discussed include the framework of trees, hedges, walls, and borders as well as rose gardens, herb gardens, topiary work, knots and mazes, ferneries, rockeries, orchards, kitchen gardens, woodlands, and meadows. There are detailed plant lists. Gardens here are on the grand scale, but the principles can be adapted to gardens of any size. American gardeners must be aware of differences in terminology and realize that the performance of plants may differ in our varied regions. Evelyn G. Callaway, California Native Plant Society, Ridgecrest
