The Penguin Book of Garden Writing by David Wheeler

Delving into the diaries, letters, casual accounts, fiction, poetry, and drama of the last six centuries, David Wheeler has produced a glorious collection of writing connected only by a love of that "most potent of words-gardening." From the underling gardener of an autocratic ladyship, to a hilarious "egg-shaped" topiarist; from celebrated gardeners, including Vita Sackville-West, Rosemary Verey, and Gertrude Jekyll, to enthusiastic amateurs who share their love of horticulture, The Penguin Book of Garden Writing takes us, most enchantingly, through the gardening year.
