Part of the Very Peculiar History series
Jacqueline Morley explores the history of one of Britain's favourite past times - gardening.
Telling the story of gardens from paradise gardens of the ancient world to classically-influenced Renaissance gardens, and from wartime Digging for Victory to contemporary decking, barbecues and architect's designs, this pocket-sized book takes a thorough look at the development of gardening.
Featuring black and white illustrations, witty anecdotes and incredible trivia, readers will be entertained and educated, discovering everything from medieval gardening to the garden's significance today.
