From the RHS comes this celebration of the garden, spanning the centuries and the globe. From the Garden of Eden to small backyards, from scented memories to bonfires and neighbour's rights, from suggestive slugs to paranoid palm-house gardeners, the poems burst out in a biodiversity of fun, exotic beauty and earthy philosophy. There's something for everyone, with a glorious array of gardening classics, perennial favourites and more recent contributions from Dorothy Parker, Sylvia Plath and John Agard.

Each poem is illustrated with a botanical print, a hand-coloured or black and white engraving, or a watercolour drawing - all from the remarkable collection of botanical art at the Royal Horticultural Society's Lindley Library, acknowledged as the worlds finest horticultural library. Together they create a colourful collection to invigorate gardening enthusiasts, delight landscape-lovers and inspire armchair gardeners everywhere.
