9780711223547: In Your Garden

From 1946, the poet and novelist Vita Sackville-West wrote a gardening column in the Observer. The columns were later collected into a set of books published between 1951 and 1958. Vita's extensive gardening knowledge, her intense passion for her subject and her lively literary flair make these classics of garden writing essential for any serious gardener's bookshelf. Volume 1 in a series of four anthologies reproducing the lively gardening columns by Vita Sackville-West. This volume covers 1946–1950.

About the Author :

Vita Sackville-West is known as much for her creation of the gardens at Sissinghurst Castle with her husband Harold Nicolson as for her numerous novels, which include The Edwardians and All Passion Spent, her collections of poetry and her gardening articles. A central figure in the Bloomsbury group of artists and writers, she was the model for Virginia Woolf's Orlando. She died in 1962.

From AudioFile :

This month-by-month selection of Vita Sackville-West's gardening columns for the LONDON OBSERVER evokes Andrew Marvell's restful phrase, "a green thought in a green shade." Her setting is the English cottage garden; her values stated in 1940s shillings and pence; her relations with plants intimate, anthropomorphic, and correct in all British and Latin nomenclature. Today's backyard gardener may find it easier to listen to than to follow her advice on the common quince and the copper beech. ("Oh, why," I cried to myself, "don't we all plant even a short length of copper beech hedge!") But McTeer's elegant rendering of the wonderful diction and flair of the mistress of Sissinghurst Castle is the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon of summer gardening, or, better yet, to the contemplation of a summer garden from the cool shade of a hammock.
