Summary

The poetic appreciations of gardens by Andrew Marvell and John Keats sit alongside the horticultural passions of Frances Hodgson Burnett and the mythic power of gardens as described by Charlotte Brontë and William Blake. Editor and avid gardener Philip Robinson has paid attention to the small, private plot as much as the grand aristocratic and imperial gardens – from medieval Japan to English Landscape to suburban Arizona – and this collection is sure to inspire and enchant gardeners everywhere.
