9781849837651: The Glory of the Garden: A Horticultural Celebration (COUNTRY LIFE)

Gardening writing goes to the heart of the iconic brand that is Country Life. Gertrude Jekyll, the doyenne of gardening art, was a driving force at the birth of Country Lifein 1897, and set the standard for some of the best English gardening writing. The influence of this writing on twentieth century English garden design is hard to overestimate. Yet here all is presented in accessible articles and choice photos.

Within the pages of The Glory of the Gardenyou can trace the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement, the Edwardian revolution in garden design, the Italianate obsessions and the eccentric longing for an Olde English style. Every article resonates with period charm, historical detail and still-relevant instruction.
