Summary:
"This is the story of how Sarah Wain and Jim Buckland wrestled back to life the neglected garden at West Dean, and a celebration of the gardening excellence they have established and passed on. The gardens at West Dean are defined by horticultural rigour and contemporary efficiencies against a Victorian backdrop. Super-tidy sheds, meticulously cared-for glasshouses and immaculately pruned fruit trees are enhanced by occasional surrealistic flourishes. Much of the garden's success is down to hard work and practical skills but this would be nothing without the artistic vision and thoughtful philosophy that Sarah Wain and Jim Buckland bring to support it. As well as glorious images of all aspects of the garden at its height through the seasons, there are shots of gardeners at work--pruning and tying in a climber, mowing, raking, labelling, washing things, stacking things."--Provided by publisher.
