239 pp, square small 4to (10 1/4" x 10 1/4"). Profusely illustrated with beautiful color photographs. "Thanks to the extraordinary photographs and gardening wisdom in this classic book, the elegant intimacy of the English cottage garden is a practical possibility for amateur gardeners in diverse regions of the United States. Margaret Hensel, whose photographs and articles on garden design have appeared in 'Horticulture' and many other magazines, has analyzed the aesthetic and horticultural elements of ten representative cottage gardens - eight in England and two in the United States (including Tasha Tudor's at Corgi Cottage in Vermont). Her spectacular photographs render the look and atmosphere of these gardens, while her text focuses on easily grown, readily available plants that are adaptable to a wide variety of climatic and soil conditions. In the back of the book may be found specific horticultural information on a wide variety of cottage garden plants commonly available in the United States, glossaries of Latin and common names, a list of sources for old rose varieties, and a detailed index. The gardens in this beautiful book are not those of the great estates of England, manicured by staffs of professional gardeners. They are, instead, labors of love on the part of individual homeowners, many of whom started with bleak, rubble-strewn lots and went on to create the enchanted settings pictured here. " Slight waviness to edges of text block; a few tiny dints on top & bottom edges of boards, rear edge of spine and on rear board. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, soft crease down rear panel near hinge, scattered tiny dints at edges and on panels, several light rub marks.
