More for Your Garden

Overview

For some fifteen years, from 1946 until 1961, the Observer carried a weekly gardening column by V. Sackville-West. Already established in her youth as a poet and a novelist, and co-creator of the great garden at Sissinghurst Castle, she combined her talents to create a unique gardening chronicle.

Overview

For some fifteen years, from 1946 until 1961, the Observer carried a weekly gardening column by V. Sackville-West. Already established in her youth as a poet and a novelist, and co-creator of the great garden at Sissinghurst Castle, she combined her talents to create a unique gardening chronicle. Her readers eagerly anticipated each week's instalment and responded in their hundreds with letters of gratitude (or occasional indignation). The popularity of her articles was due to her unusual ability to weave a simple, honest account of her gardening experiences with an inspiring romantic sensibility. The combination of informality and practical advice created a style that entertains as it informs, appealing to expert and amateur gardeners -- as well as to those happy simply to sit indoors and dream. Covering the period 1953-55, More For Your Garden is the third volume in a series of four anthologies of her articles, which are arranged according to the month in which they were published.
