The Country Gardener

By Penelope Hobhouse


This is essential reading for anyone with a jungle that they want to turn into a romantic country-style garden – single-handedly.

Penelope Hobhouse shows how to clear, plan and plant for minimum upkeep and cost, using plants rather than people and machinery to do the work. These inspiringly simple strategies, developed for her own garden in the country, apply to gardens old and new, large and small. The Country Gardener encompasses the whole gardening process, including such down-to-earth practicalities as clearing the ground, improving the soil and establishing plants. It features over 150 color photographs and full descriptions of over 800 plants. A stimulating account of the principles of imaginative gardening, this is a classic work to return to, time and again.
