Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped.

Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Did the Romans have rakes? Did the monks get muddy? Did the potato seem really weird when it arrived on our shores? This potted history of gardening in Britain takes us on a tour from the thorn hedges around prehistoric settlements to the rage for decking and ornamental grasses today. It tracks down the ordinary folk who worked the earth — the apprentice boys and weeding women, the florists and nursery gardeners — as well as the aristocrats, grand designers and famous plant-hunters.”
