    This is a collection of V Sackville West s articles on plants and gardening It s definitely not a practical guide and I m sure she had gardeners on her estate but it s the perfect book to read to get inspired about your own gardening projects It s most helpful to read in the late fall or winter, to dream up new schemes for spring planting Also fun if you like period writing nobody writes how to pieces in this style any possibly for good reason

    Having visited Sissinghurst very recently, I enjoyed reading the very personal account of Vita Sackville West and her ideas behind some of the design and planting in the garden.

    Vita was a woman ahead of her time, as a prolific gardener who created an iconic white garden at Sissinghurst For a serious gardener or a fan of the Bloomsbury Group, she is a must read.
