The Pursuit Of Paradise: A Social History Of Gardens And Gardening
Brown, Jane
Harper Collins UK 1999 
 Hardcover 900g, 377 crisp pp, 2 photo sections. Full of fascinating characters and vignettes, from ancient Greeks to suffragettes, from eccentric military men to Catholics in hiding from persecution, this book looks into how society's changes have altered our views of gardening, who does it, and how we do it. What drives people to risk their lives in search of a rare Himalayan flower? Why are so many gardeners homosexual? How did gardening become a respectable career for women? When did looking at other people's gardens become a national British pastime? Using particular gardens to lead into themes like power, refuge, female emancipation, distribution of wealth and fashion, it presents a history of Britain through its most popular national pursuit. review >>> Fascinating book weaving the social history of Britain and further afield with the history of garden design. The author writes beautifully. Jane Brown is a widely acclaimed garden historian. Her many books include studies of Gertrude Jekyll and Vita Sackville West; the development of the modern garden; Tales of the Rose Tree, a history of the rhododendron ( we have a copy); and the much-praised The Pursuit of Paradise: A Social History of Gardens and Gardening. She lives in Cambridgeshire.  Excellent/Excellent

Starting Out with Native Plants
Charlotte De La Bedoyere
New Holland Publishing UK 2007 
  There are huge advantages for the gardener in growing native plants: local plants are low maintenance because they are adapted to local soils and they will usually withstand adverse weather conditions, such as summer droughts. Many will also grow in difficult areas in poor soil conditions. But perhaps the best reason for growing them is that they help to sustain and preserve the natural biodiversity of the local area: insects, birds and other animals depend on them for food and shelter. Starting Out with Native Plants illustrates and catalogues all the plants, excluding trees and shrubs, which are native to Britain. For each plant there are details of its size, habit, flowering season, hardiness, soil and site requirements, propagation and pruning methods, providing British gardeners with an instant and valuable source of reference for their local plant heritage. Book in great order.  Excellent/Excellent
