About the Author

Twigs Way is a garden historian and writer, and the author of a number of books on garden subjects, including 'Crocodiles in the Fernery' and Allotments'.


"What makes this book stand apart from any other book on such topics is that it's actually a serious history of one of our most beloved gardening icons. Sure, it's funny, but it's also filled with historical facts. I loved it. I think it's the perfect gift for garden-lovers and history buffs alike." --Tales from Clark Street, (September 2009)
