From the cover: “This book, by a devoted but amateur gardener, is not so much a textbook as a treasury of ideas. Ideas on designing and planting, ideas for the winter garden and the wild garden, ideas for planting the odd corner or filling the August gap, ideas for hedges and climbing plants, paths and windbreaks, ideas on books to read and gardens to visit. There is a separate chapter of ideas on gardening on chalk and lime.

The author writes of her own garden, made, like so many, with too little time, money and professional help, full of imperfections, but a continual source of pleasure. But she writes also of many other gardens all over Britain, and has collected practical and imaginative ideas from the owner-gardeners of some of the loveliest gardens of our time.”
