This book was written at a time when you took time with planning your garden. You planned the colours, the approach to plants, the perfume and most of all, you were planning, not just for this next season, but decades to come. It was a time of gentle reflection.

I'm a huge Daphne Du Maurier fan and she wrote the foreword. I read it as a break from thrillers and murder mysteries and it was just what I needed. It was a soft refreshing of my palate for books. A gentle stroll through gardens of then and now. And although I don't know the latin names of flowers, I loved the description of the planting and the growing of them.
