As with everything else Martha does, her gardens are on a grand scale and ambitious. What I like about this book are several things: she gardens in a similar climate zone to mine; her gardens are generally unpretentious, and her English-inspired style is one I enjoy. Each month, she lays out the work needing to be done for the various flower and vegetable gardens, then focuses on a seasonal aspect of her garden. The book is lavishly illustrated, and for those of us who are visual people--what gardener isn't?--the ideas are inspiring.
The information is fairly basic, but actually useful to those who are beginning to garden on a more serious scale. She does not seem to depend heavily on chemical warfare and emphasizes such basics as good soil preparation and the other down and dirty aspects of good gardening. If your gardening budget can afford it and you find inspiration from good garden design photos, this book is worth your time and money.
Basically, it's good for inspiring beginners; however, if you want to garden in 'le style anglais' go to straight Penelope Hobhouse. As I believe they say in the States - she's got it going on!

This is SUCH a fun book to read! If it wasn't for young Martha, or the obviously 80's/90's fashion, you'd think this book was from today. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Jessica Jarvi Bergman

This is not at all what I expected. I thought it would give instructions on gardening; it does not. It's a nice coffee table book with nice pictures, but I cannot use it. Read morePublished 20 months ago by M. Wilkins
