Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Verey is one of the foremost living garden designers and author of several books, including Rosemary Verey's Good Planting Plans (LJ 12/93). Here she focuses on the evolution and maintenance of her own garden in Gloucestershire. This book is intimidating enough to make an ordinary gardener want to give up, but once you realize that Barnsley House represents the epitome of horticultural art, you can relax and enjoy the view. Verey spotlights the major components of her garden-knot garden, frog fountain, potager, "the wilderness," and more-in chapters brimming with glorious color photographs and notes on plant combinations. A final chapter on the garden year explains how the work gets done (and by whom!). Verey's is a very English garden, full of unusual plants that are unlikely to appear in most of the United States. Good design, however, is universal. Recommended for larger gardening collections.-Beth Clewis Crim, Prince William P.L., Va.
