Charles Elliott. With the perspective of an American gardener living abroad, Elliott plumbs the far reaches of the British gardening psyche, musing on moles, on giant vegetables, & on taste in the garden. There are tales of great gardeners such as Edward Bowles & William Robinson, & of more dubious characters like William Forsyth, whose name adorns the shrub but who might better be remembered for a hoax. From the history of lawns & lawnmowers, to a technique for figuring out the age of your hedge, to the curious phenomenon of the ha-ha & the 18th-cent. landscape designer who recommended fake volcanoes, Elliott ranges wittily through the world of Brit. hort. past & present.
