About this book

The culmination of 35 years' experience, Rosemary Verey's garden at Barnsley House, Gloucestershire, is one of England's finest and most famous. Taking readers on a personal tour of the garden, she gives an account of her learning process in making it, including not only successes and the realization of dreams but also changes as the garden evolved. She sympathetically explains different gardening skills, including creating an all-seasons garden, making a decorative vegetable garden, choosing the best bulbs, and placing focal points such as statues and fountains. Seen through the creator's eyes, the garden yields wisdom for everyone, from beginners to the most experienced of gardeners.
