From 1946, the poet and novelist Vita Sackville-West wrote a gardening column in the Observer. The columns were later collected into a set of books published between 1951 and 1958. Vita's extensive gardening knowledge, her intense passion for her subject and her lively literary flair make these classics of garden writing essential for any serious gardener's bookshelf.

Vita Sackville-West is known as much for her creation of the gardens at Sissinghurst Castle with her husband Harold Nicolson as for her numerous novels, which include The Edwardians and All Passion Spent, her collections of poetry and her gardening articles. A central figure in the Bloomsbury group of artists and writers, she was the model for Virginia Woolf's Orlando. She died in 1962.
