Synopsis: An comprehensive guide to one of the most famous gardens in the world

Gardeners have been copying the border and plant combinations of Sissinghurst for years. Now, for the first time, all the elements that lie behind the famed garden's horticultural distinction are examined in unparalleled depth. The two former head gardeners and the current head gardener offer invaluable insight and inspiration.

Examinations of the design, development, planting, and maintenance of each area of the garden reveal how Sissinghurst's spring-to-autumn display is achieved. Also included is a list of plant combinations as well as a descriptive catalog of every plant raised in the garden. Two hundred full-color photographs and 15 design and planting plans fully illustrate the book.

Review: For visual inspiration, nothing can compare to the Sissinghurst, the gardens that Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson began in 1930. Lord, a writer, photographer, and horticulturist examines the planning behind the formal structure and the informal methods used by teams of gardeners to maintain the garden's design. His text and photographs are accompanied by watercolors by Frances Lincoln representing segments of the planting plans.
