About this title

Synopsis:

Offering access to a hitherto completely private family garden, this book features seven magnificent gatefolds, ribbon markers, head and tail bands, making it a gift to treasure for all garden lovers

The productive garden at Lord Rothschild's private house, Eythrope in Buckinghamshire, England, is legendary in the garden world for the excellence of the gardening and as a haven for traditional techniques that might otherwise be lost. Under the leadership of the renowned head gardener Sue Dickinson, this garden works on a scale that is now unique, producing, year-round, all the fruit, vegetables, and flowers for a country house where entertaining still happens on a grand scale and where everything is done to the highest standards. Paradise and Plenty, an in-depth exploration of the garden, opens a window on a garden that has always, until now, been kept intensely private, and a world beyond most gardeners' dreams. But in this book everything shown is useful as well as beautiful. Gregory Long of the New York Botanic Garden points out in his introduction to the book that as more and more people turn to growing their own, books are needed that show the techniques of dedicated cultivation, as well as the results. Many of the techniques used at Eythrope are old and tried, but have fallen out of use almost everywhere else. With glorious colour photography throughout, seven double gatefolds and a ribbon marker, Paradise and Plenty will be the garden book of the year.
