Review

My favourite book of the season, this book is hard to beat. One of the best things about My Kind of Garden, in contrast with most gardening books, is that the words are few and never boring (The Daily Telegraph)

Beautiful colour photography and insightful, cutting critique make this a well rounded look at the 20th century world class garden. A highly recommended addition for all garden lovers' libraries, from the late David Hicks. A book you will treasure.

Five stars - and only because you can't give a product "six". This is simply an amazing resource. Mr. Hicks'garden insights are priceless and his perspective on gardens singluar in merit. One of my all time favorite gardening books - beautiful on your coffee table AND a great read. His last book - and what a shame!

I gave this book to Larry Horne, FASID Imternational Designs, inc. He had visited some of the gardens. He designed The Timbers Gardens in Asheville, NC.

4 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Robert Peterson on November 16, 2004
Format: Paperback
I bought this book as a gift for my boss's wife as she is an avid gardener and photographer. I should have saved my money and taken the photos myself. The pictures are amateur at BEST. The talent is non existent and you will see that numerous pictures are OUT OF FOCUS. It looks like most of the photographs were taken with a Kodak disposable camera. The photographer must need glasses if she thinks the pictures are in focus. Conclusion: Save your money. You'd be better off buying your own camera and taking pictures yourself. There are plenty of other GREAT gardening books out there with much better, well thought out, professional, in focus, photographs.
