By: Tony Lord
Created by Vita Sackvill-West and sir Harold Nicolson, Sissinghurst represents romatic gardening at its most successful. This book reveals the secrets behind the most-visited garden in Britain. It relates the garden's outstanding features to the distinctive styles of Sir Harold and Vita, and examines the design, development, planting and maintenance of each part of the garden throughout the year. The book draws on inside information from two former gardeners who worked for Sackville-West and from the current Sissinghurst head gardener. It includes detailed planting plans of the beds and borders, and analyzes the precise use of colours that make this garden one of the most copied in the world. It also provides a descriptive catalogue of the plants raised at Sissinghurst and named after the garden or its creators. Combined with author's own photographs, this book is an exploration of a unique garden. Tony Lord is the author of "The Plant Finder" and "Best Borders".
