Description

Created by Vita Sackville-West and Sir Harold Nicolson, Sissinghurst represents romatic gardening at its most successful. It is one of the most visited garden in Britain. This book relates the garden's outstanding features to the distinctive styles of Sir Harold and Vita, and examines the design, development, planting and maintenance of each part of the garden throughout the year. There are detailed planting plans of the beds and borders, and an analysis of the precise use of colours that make this garden one of the most copied in the world. A descriptive catalogue lists the plants raised at Sissinghurst and named after the garden or its creators.
