A classic book that’s still THE go-to guide for today’s gardeners! Margery Fish's advice and enthusiasm for horticulture has stood the test of time, and her definitive 1960s gardening book is still essential for anyone who wants to create a cottage garden. In her imaginative adaption of the traditional style, Fish brings together old-fashioned and contemporary plants—including Astrantia, columbines, daffodils, daisies, Dianthus, foxgloves, hollyhocks, Japonica, old roses, Phlox, Primula, and Virburnum. This edition includes a foreword by Graham Rice, the widely published gardening author and the former London Evening Standard gardening correspondent. Rice has also reviewed the plant names in the original text, providing a plant name section at the back of the book so readers can identify current plants from the Latin names within the text.
