About this book

The garden at the Manor House, Upton Grey in Hampshire was designed by Gertrude Jekyll for Charles Holme, the founder of 'The Studio'. Having fallen into disrepair it has been accurately and painstakingly recreated over a period of 16 years to embody Gertrude Jekyll's original vision. It now contains the only complete restored Jekyll wild garden still in existence. The recreation was made possible by the discovery of Jekyll's original plans at the Reef Point Collection in the United States, secured for posterity by the great American landscape architect Beatrix Farrand. Rosamund Wallinger, the current owner of the Manor House, personally undertook the restoration of this Edwardian masterpiece. Meticulous records and photographs kept throughout the restoration have enabled Rosamund Wallinger to produce a beautifully illustrated and historic document. Full of fascinating horticultural details, and tinged with a very necessary sense of humour, her account makes fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in garden design and garden history.
