Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This attractive book contains descriptions and fine quality color photographs of over 60 English herb gardens, which show a wide diversity in planning and design. Although most of the gardens date from 1960 to the present, they have been developed upon historical principles and are often restorations of gardens known to have existed in conjunction with grand manor houses, cottages, and medieval monastic structures. Plants chosen for the gardens may be medicinal, aromatic, or culinary in purpose. Descriptive comments include notes on the architecture and history of the buildings the gardens complement. An illustrated glossary of herbs, including uses and propagation, adds to the value of the book. Evelyn G. Callaway, California Native Plant Soc., Ridgecrest

I love this book! My first reaction to it was to soak up all the gorgeous photos. Only after days did I feel able to concentrate on the very helpful text which explains the gardens and is full of history and good plant advice. I use the book all the time to get ideas, to look at pairings of plants, to see how objects look in a well-planned garden, and use the text to gain information for my own gardens, one in Wisconsin and one in southern Louisiana. It's amazing that I can grow many of the same plants in both places, don't you think? But no matter how diligently I plan, I'll never have a stone Cotswold manor house as a backdrop, nor a tithe barn, nor ancient double walls. I do have the plants, though, and this book really helps me decide what to use where and how the herbs look and act with flowers.
