Synopses & Reviews
In the first four decades of the last century, magazines such House Beautiful, House and Garden, Ladies' Home Journal, and The Garden Magazine provided readers with some of the best garden advice ever written. Virginia Clayton has selected over fifty of these marvels of garden prose and arranged them in chapters covering everything from "Wild Gardens" and "Formal Gardens" to "Gardening through the Seasons" and "The Philosophical Gardener." The book is enhanced with photographs from the articles themselves, including a color plate section reproducing sixteen glorious magazine covers.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 289-300) and indexes.
