About this book

A study of the great Victorian and Edwardian head gardeners, a group of self-made men who transformed gardening from menial labour into a profession. This book aims to recreate the social world of the great country house gardens where staffs of up to fifty might be employed in growing produce of awe-inspiring variety in prodigious quantities.
