Sissinghurst is a book of the past, the present, and the future. Author Adam Nicolson is the grandson of poet, gardener and socialite Vita Sackville-West and her diplomat memoirist husband, Harold Nicolson. In the 1930s, Sackville-West created the Sissinghurst Castle Gardens on their estate, transforming this ancient site into one of the most beautiful and famous gardens in England. The family gave the property to the National Trust in 1967, but continues to renew their connection with this natural sanctuary. In recent years, Nicolson has launched a campaign to revive the preserve as a working farm. This sumptuous hardcover records that effort in words and breathtaking photographs.
