From the secret to cultivating the smoothest lawn to the art of lifting and replanting tulip bulbs to the landscaping possibilities of evergreens, the diverse elements of successful gardening—and delightful writing—are bound together by Mr. The independent-minded quarterly magazine that combines good looks, good writing and a personal approach. My only thought was to get the project under way before Walter took an interest in what I was doing and complicated matters with too much criticism and advice. We all have a lot to learn and in every new garden there is a chance of finding inspiration - new flowers, different arrangements or fresh treatment for old subjects. Being so very historic, you’ll need to excuse the quality of these pre-digital photos – or don’t, if you’d rather not).

With the flowers (which her husband considered the least important part of the garden) dead, perhaps Margery would pay more attention to keeping the paths neat. It's just so lighthearted reading full of good ideas based on long time gardening experience and of course witty remarks about the relationship with her husband, their disagreements and who actually got it right. Yes, she absolutely does have a sense of humour, particularly over her own mistakes – such an attractive trait in both life and writing! A passion for nature and ability to mix plants effectively even in the smallest space and in differing environments, made her ideas relevant to all gardeners of her time and for future generations of gardeners.Delightful read on the creation from scratch of an English Garden on the site of an old farm house and surrounding farm yard/barton combining her husband's 4 elements of a garden: lawn, walls, paths, hedges and her love of flowers, especially in every season possible. Slightly Foxed brings back forgotten voices through its Slightly Foxed and Plain Foxed Editions, a series of beautifully produced little pocket hardback reissues of classic memoirs, all of them absorbing and highly individual. But, as her health deteriorated, tending a big kitchen garden became too much for her and the plot slipped into neglect.

The husband is older and overbearing, but Margery comes into her own, especially after his death, and becomes a noteworthy gardener herself.

If, by an oversight, it is allowed to stay on a piece of a flower bed for more than a minute, in two minutes that flower bed will be a solid mat of stonecrop of a particularly luxuriant quality.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. Her prose is practical rather than lyrical, and you probably should enjoy gardening to enjoy this book.Her good sense, practical knowledge and imaginative ideas will encourage and inspire gardeners everywhere. I sometimes dream of finding an undiscovered room in my house, or better still, an entire dusty, unused wing, but, to date, this is the only time it happened for real. They had married in 1933 after working together at the Daily Mail and while Walter had had gardens of his own in his previous homes, this was the first one Margery had ever been involved with.
