* Gardening writer Diana Ross visits nineteen gardens and interviews their famous owners * Evocative potography by Howard Sooley
Diana Ross is an amateur gardener who turned her hand to writing relatively recently. She began writing for Hortus in 1995, and in 2000 began her series of interviews with gardeners.
Ross has chosen her subjects well. They have one thing in common: they are all exceptional. Her collection is absorbing reading. Waterstone's Books Quarterly
