About this book

Tradescant's Diary, a column of garden jottings, first appeared in the RHS magazine, "The Garden", in June 1975. Hugh Johnson was its author (in addition to his being Editorial Director of the magazine) and it became a monthly fixture for the RHS' committed gardeners. Hugh's writings are filled with an eclectic mixture of topical, whimsical and humorous anecdotes and are organized to follow a gardener's monthly calendar. Under the name "Tradescant's Diary", a name taken from John Tradescant, gardener to Lord Cecil at Hatfield House and to King James I, who was one of the first men to introduce plants from foreign countries to his own garden, Hugh's writings appeared in "The Garden" from 1975-2006, in "Gardens Illustrated" in 2007, and in 2008 still appear as monthly blogs through his own website.

Biography

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine, but he is also arguably the world's leading popular writer on gardening and, in 2007, he was awarded the OBE for services to winemaking and horticulture. Sales of Hugh's books now exceed 14 million. Perhaps known best to millions through his internationally bestselling wine books, A Life in The Garden shows a different facet of Hugh's expertise. He has published several books on gardening - notably The Gardener's Companion and the International Book of Trees, a revision of which he is currently undertaking. By 1979, with the challenge of restoring the fine but neglected gardens he acquired on his move to Saling Hall in Essex, he wrote The Principles of Gardening, (translated into six languages; sales 250,000 copies). The garden and arboretum at Saling Hall have since gained an international reputation and The Principles was rewritten and reissued in 1996 as Hugh Johnson's Gardening Companion (In the USA the original title is unchanged).
