Reviews

"The book charts gardening right up to the present day, looking at the spike in demand for allotments and the current boom in naturalistic gardening. This isn't a dry historical reference book, it's filled with interesting anecdotes and asides that bring all the eras to life" -- Rachael Funnell * English Garden * "Uglow's account of a national obsession is a delight from beginning to end" * The Observer * "This book will be a joy for any gardener" * The Independent * "The biographer of Gaskell and Hogarth now takes us into the garden, where plants glow and miniature landscapes unfold at the touch of her easy prose" * Sunday Telegraph * "Enchanting, stirringly evocative and fascinating" * Daily Mail *
