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

Gardens of Obsession Eccentric and Extravagant Visions
Taylor, Gordon & Cooper, Guy
Weidenfeld & Nicolson UK 1999 
 Hardcover How would you describe the garden of your dreams? Gordon Taylor and Guy Cooper have found more than 150 gardens that could be called visionary, magical, beautiful, mysterious, witty, and bizarre. They are located in countries as diverse as Britain, the United States, France, Germany, Canada, Belgium, Italy, Mexico, and Australia. Some are based on myths and allegories from the ancient world; others grew out of a passion for a single type of plant. Some reflect high culture; others are folksy or kitsch. Ideas have taken on a new life as extravagant topiaries in Ecuador, a formal Renaissance garden in France, giant wooden hands rising from a small hillside garden in California, and a garden of 1500 roses in Somerset planted in order of their introduction into western Europe. Each of these gardens is an extraordinary example of a person's innermost, all-consuming fantasy come to life. review >> Many of the gardens are the brainchildren of artists or others of singular vision. Of course, those with the means to indulge themselves (i.e., the wealthy) are disproportionately represented. Everything from topiary and sculpture gardens to collections of giant vegetables is featured, all with wonderful color photos.   Excellent/Very Good

Vita’s other world: a gardening biography of V. Sackville-West
Brown, Jane
Viking UK 1986 
 Hardcover 240 crisp pp & almost a kilo to post. Masses of bw & col pix throughout. In making Sissinghurst, Vita Sackville-West created one of the finest and most famous gardens in England and placed herself among the great gardeners of this century. This book traces Vita's development as a gardener, leading the reader through the past of her beloved Knole, her marriage, travels to Constantinople and Persia, her first garden at Long Barn and finally to Sissinghurst Castle where, with her husband Harold Nicolson, she designed and made a garden of outstanding beauty. reviewer says >>> This is an interesting portrait of Vita as gardener (I highly reccommend her gardening writing). I feel like so many biographers of Vita allow her bisexuality and, most particularly, her relationship with Virginia Woolf, to eclipse all her other accomplishments. This biography is a welcome change from all that-- not to mention the fact that there are so few biographies of gardeners in general. I feel like I learned a lot about Vita, about her garden at Sissinghurst, and about gardening in general from this book.   Very Good/Very Good
