Roald Dahl and his family in their garden at Great Missenden; Nancy Lancaster, society hostess and interior designer, sporting an elegant straw sombrero and snipping delicately at her roses; Vita Sackville-West at Sissinghurst - these and many other dedicated gardeners are captured here by the discerning eye of Valerie Finnis. This photographic record of the postwar English gardening scene by one of the people at its epicentre will be devoured by anyone with a love of British gardens or horticulture in general.
