As gardening columnist for The New York Times, Anne Raver is one of our foremost authorities on making things grow. Even non-gardeners will find this book of essays a source of profound pleasure, for Raver is a writer who transcends her subject even as she illuminates it, writing with such passion, wisdom and stylishmess that her book will enchant anyone who reads it.
In this book the author describes the way her garden evolved and how, without meaning to do so, she let it take over her life. She suggests moving away from planning, regimentation and gardening with the mentality of a stamp-collector. Frequently funny and always stimulating, she writes of the alchemy of gardens, of the 19th-century plant-collectors and plant illustrators and of the gardening philosophers, all fertilizing great thoughts along with their hollyhocks. She won the 1988 Sinclair Consumer Press Garden Writer of the Year Award.
A biography of an unsung Victorian hero, Joseph Paxton was the man behind the garden design at Chatsworth and the Crystal Palace at the Great Exhibition of 1851.

--plucked fresh from the garden--become the soul of cookery. Using his own experience as a guide, Pellegrini tells you how to plan your own garden, when to plant what, how to determine your needs, how to nurture and harvest what you have grown, and how best to use the treasures you will reap. He not only gives you heart to break the soil and sow your own first seeds, but shows you how to raise almost anything, from the lowly and wonderful bean to the exotic artichoke and mysterious cardoon. This is a book that could only have been written by a man with a love of the soil and an instinct for the good life. Angelo Pellegrini’s joy in gardening is so contagious that his exuberant book is bound to ensnare you--that is, if you are a serious cook. It is interlaced with memories of sensuous moments, snatches of mouth-watering recipes, and unabashed descriptions of the rewards of building a garden in limited space and tending it, season after season, for the pleasure of the table.
