The Adventurous Gardener, Paperback / softback Book

The Adventurous Gardener Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'The best informed, liveliest and most innovative gardening writer of our times' GUARDIAN'Christopher Lloyd ranks with Gertrude Jekyll and Vita Sackville-West as one of the major figures in twentieth-century British gardening' THE TIMESIn this gardening classic the forever adventurous Christopher Lloyd takes us on a tour through the garden, to encourage, to reveal and to overturn the old and accepted when experience prompts him.

He advises on cuttings, pruning, the art of compromise and takes another look at Miss Jekyll.

Gardening was a passion, and throughout his life he developed Great Dixter to be one of Britain's greatest gardens. For Christo gardening is nothing if not fun and - pointing out that 'to be roused into an argumentative frame of mind is in itself no bad thing' - he makes it equally stimulating and enjoyable for his readers.
