Writers have long found relaxation and inspiration in gardening, oftendiscussing their efforts in eloquent essays that seem to capture the very scent of the earth. This anthology brings together the best gardening essays from around the world and across the centuries. Highlights in this rich, satisfying collection include medieval herbalist John Gerard extolling the virtues of the potato, Czech playwright Karel Capek's celebrating the winter garden, Catherine Parr Traill's 1855 gardening tips, and a reminiscence of Thomas Hardy by his gardener, Bertie Stephens.
