Description


Offering access to a hitherto completely private family garden, this book features seven magnificent gatefolds, ribbon markers, head and tail bands, making it a gift to treasure for all garden lovers. The productive garden at Lord Rothschild's private house, Eythrope in Buckinghamshire, England, is legendary in the garden world for the excellence of the gardening and as a haven for traditional techniques that might otherwise be lost. Under the leadership of the renowned head gardener Sue Dickinson, this garden works on a scale that is now unique, producing, year-round, all the fruit, vegetables, and flowers for a country house where entertaining still happens on a grand scale and where everything is done to the highest standards. This in-depth exploration of the garden opens a window on a garden that has always, until now, been kept intensely private, and a world beyond most gardeners' dreams. Many of the techniques used at Eythrope are old and tried, but have fallen out of use almost everywhere else.
