Here’s an October book giveaway.
This is what publisher, Frances Lincoln, has to say about ‘The Garden Anthology‘.
‘RHS The Garden Anthology’ presents more than 100 years of the best writing in The Garden magazine, the respected journal of the Royal Horticultural Society. The collection features the work of 80 of the world’s most celebrated gardeners, from Gertrude Jekyll and E A Bowles in the early 20th century to the contemporary commentators James Wong, Nigel Slater, John Brookes and Tim Richardson. The anthology paints a rich and intriguing picture of what gardening means today, revealing key moments in a time of intense change. The writers tell of plant-hunting and new practice, fashion and growing food, whilst shedding light on the inner landscape of the thoughtful gardener. From announcing the first news of Gregor Mendel’s experiments on genetics in 1900, to a report on the memorial garden at Ground Zero in Manhattan in 2011, Ursula Buchan selects the most important and atmospheric pieces to inspire, inform and sometimes amuse.
It’s an anthology that will be the perfect literary companion for garden lovers and gardeners alike.
