Phillips and Rix give their quest for four ‘stud’ roses a touch of Poirot and poetry

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Books Special -

Jones, Graham Stu­art Thomas, Margery Fish and Christopher Lloyd among many oth­ers make it a trea­sury of gar­den his­tory and plants­man­ship. Small but chunky, it has ev­ery­thing in it – Pain­shill; Wil­liam Beck­ford; vine­yards; crin­kle­cran­kle walls; her­mits’ cells; mod­ern gar­dens; win­ter, wild and labour-sav­ing gar­dens; his­toric and no­table trees – all of the things we love in a com­pact, in­for­ma­tive tome. A desert is­land in­tro­duc­tion to gar­dens and gar­den­ing.
