The Garden Against Time by Olivia Laing

Staff Pick

How many of us understand what we are looking at when strolling through a beautiful garden? Do we notice a particular style? Or do we take in a wider--fascinating--history? Do we understand how the garden reflects a particular vision of the joy and beauty of paradise? Laing's own look in this comprehensive survey of British gardening covers these themes and more; unleashing her passion for plants, she leads us on a journey into the creation of a safe, private, bountiful, and truly extraordinary garden. There is plenty here to delight both gardeners and non-gardeners!
