From the cover: “Our gardens vary in their style and choice of plants. This book conveys a clear style of planting and design and picks out the plants and arrangements which mark out the changing seasons and make up a charming whole. Robin Lane Fox explores the modern fashions for scent, fine leaves, architectural planting and wild gardening, suggesting specific ideas from which we can plan a new garden or improvements of our own. His detailed advice is combined with strong preferences in colour, placing and types of plant. It also has the historical and literary range which have made him one of the best known English garden writers. His variations range from winter jasmine to China roses, from the inspiration of the flora of the Arctic, which he visited, to the best way to be sure of planting wild cyclamen the right way up.”
