This is a fascinating exploration of the writings and personalities who have shaped our ideas about gardens and gardening. Gardening, more than most outdoor activities, has always attracted a cult of devotedly literate practitioners - people who like to dig, it appears, also like to write. For the most part they are not professional landscape designers or how-to horticulturalists, but rather hands-on gardeners who write with their own gardens in full-view. Ranging in time and place from France to modern-day New York City, they invite the listener into the natural world of soil and flowers.

"A literary conversation across two centuries. Praise for the author: 'Her book is a delight to have and to hold, small enough to slip into a pocket to read in the garden.' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT"
