Sissinghurst : The Making of a Garden

Author(s): Anne Scott-James


In 1930, Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson fell in love with a neglected Elizabethan castle in Kent - Sissinghurst. They restored the house, but it is the garden they created - and which is now owned by the National Trust - that attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year. From the Nicolson's notes, diaries and letters, the author records how the garden was made, how the Nicolson-Sackville-West gardening partnership worked and how the garden became one of the strongest bonds holding their marriage together. The author also wrote "Down to Earth", "The Cottage Garden", "The Language of the Garden" and "Gardening Letters to My Daughter".

1987. Ninth impression. A very good copy with a previous owners bookplate to the verso of the front wrap and age tanning to the pages.
