About this title


The author shares her philosophy of gardening, shows examples of garden designs for courtyards, perennial borders, and kitchen and pool gardens, and includes garden care advice.

From Booklist:

Tintinhull is a splendid garden, among the very loveliest of England's National Trust properties. Hobhouse, perhaps the most celebrated gardening designer and writer at work today, has been the resident expert there for over a decade. While leading readers on a remarkable tour of Tintinhull's garden "rooms" and renowned flower borders, Hobhouse shares her personal design philosophy and passes along plenty of practical horticultural advice. But the book's most essential counsel is found in 17 garden clans showing favored plants and plant combinations. Andrew Lawson's exquisite photography is yet another asset, revealing the beauty of changing seasonal displays, and portraying Hobhouse at work as she prunes, stakes, and generally cares for these magnificent gardens. Alice Joyce

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
