Verey is one of the foremost living garden designers and author of several books, including Rosemary Verey's Good Planting Plans (LJ 12/93). Here she focuses on the evolution and maintenance of her own garden in Gloucestershire. This book is intimidating enough to make an ordinary gardener want to give up, but once you realize that Barnsley House represents the epitome of horticultural art, you can relax and enjoy the view. Verey spotlights the major components of her garden-knot garden, frog fountain, potager, "the wilderness," and more-in chapters brimming with glorious color photographs and notes on plant combinations. A final chapter on the garden year explains how the work gets done (and by whom!). Verey's is a very English garden, full of unusual plants that are unlikely to appear in most of the United States. Good design, however, is universal. Recommended for larger gardening collections.

Verey created one of England's finest and most famous gardens with little prior experience with gardening or design: this history of her garden also provides novices with the basics of garden creation and design, blending a memoir with chapters which provide specific, individual focuses and garden tours of her work. A wonderful gift volume for any involved in gardening. -- Midwest Book Review
