I allowed the orange montbrecia and carmine escalonia that do so well on the coast, but also a richly scented old white rugosa rose, rosemary, and blue ceanothus.

Barnsley, with its lively pink flowers gave us several gorgeous years of flowers from spring through November, but finally gave up. My grandmother's purple primroses are long gone and I cannot seem to get replacements to settle, but there is always salal, a native bush much-loved by florists for its leathery leaves, and loved by my family for the berries I use like blueberries in muffins.Dust Jackets are not guaranteed and when still present, they will have various degrees of tear and damage.

Yes, she absolutely does have a sense of humour, particularly over her own mistakes – such an attractive trait in both life and writing! Now with a space of her own, Margery threw herself wholeheartedly into the making of a cottage garden, making up in enthusiasm and energy what she lacked in knowledge. Clearly none of us are ever going to achieve a Margery sized garden or house without a lottery win, but you can still dream!

This book charmed me by the cover and hypnotized me with old-fashioned language, both British and Latin. But then, I’d stumbled into a vast and smiley world of strange expertise and Latin names; of pH and soil types; of grafting and pruning; of annuals and perennials and biennials; of seed sowing and cuttings; and, and… stuff.Mrs Woolf, wife of the manager, is a very celebrated author and, in her own way, more important than Galsworthy.

Walter died in 1947 and while Margery remembers him fondly throughout the book and his influence helped make her the gardener she became, she also obviously enjoyed the freedom she had after his death to shape the garden according only to her own ideas. Fish’s aspiration to cultivate that most precious and slow-growing quality—the fundamental character of a good garden.

The previous owner grew her vegetables here and, for decades, she’d dug in compost and she’d dug in manure. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. If, by an oversight, it is allowed to stay on a piece of a flower bed for more than a minute, in two minutes that flower bed will be a solid mat of stonecrop of a particularly luxuriant quality.Her prose is practical rather than lyrical, and you probably should enjoy gardening to enjoy this book. In this beautiful and timeless work, she recounts the trails and tribulations, successes and failures, of her venture with ease and humour. Used books have different signs of use and might not include supplemental materials such as CDs, Dvds, Access Codes, charts or any other extra material. I can well imagine the tensions between two people trying to make a garden with competing visions for it.
